Roman Empire was an ancient civilization with whom was commonly traded in ancient India.—From India’s western coast, spices, ivory, gems, timber, silks and other textiles, besides ‘exotic’ animals like monkeys and peacocks, found their way to Egypt, Asia Minor and the Near East, finally to Greece and Rome. Trade with the Roman Empire began gradually in the 3rd century BCE, reached its peak in the 1st centuries BCE and CE, and slowly followed the decline of the Roman Empire.

Archaeology, Greek and Latin texts and the Tamil Sangam literature agree with a wealth of details that Roman traders frequented south Indian ports. One early Tamil text states, for example, “The beautiful ships of the Yavanas [a word for Greeks or Romans] arrived filled with goods such as oil, wine, glass vases, gold and silver coins.”
