The Graeco-Roman Red Sea port of Berenike has been a place of archaeological excavations since 1994. The studies have proved that it had been a centre of commercial contact between the Roman Empire and Persian Gulf, Arabia, Sri Lanka and India. Coin finds from the site can, in a way, reflect these contacts, even though the trade had supposedly been conducted by barter.
