'It is strongly believed that Trapobane is a large island which lies to the south in the Indian sea. It extends lengthwise in the direction of Ethiopia for more than five thousand stadia, as they say; from it much ivory is brought to the Indian trade, tortoise- shell and other merchandise.' From Strabo's Geography. Book 2:1(14).
