Only about 60 miles north of this port was the city of Petra, so called by Greek conquerors who translated one of its Aramaean names, Sela, i. The principal local name of the city, however, was not Petra, but Rekem or Rekam.
During the first two centuries A. The city fell under the Mahommedan empire, and from that time to the beginning of the present century was nearly lost from the memory of man. Unheeded in the desert, and for centuries forgotten, the stately ruins of the hill-encircled city and its chiselled rocks still remain an evidence that may not be gainsayed of the mighty traffic once passing through the marts of Petra, of the princely magnificence of her merchants, of the truth of history, and of the unerring certainty of prophetic denunciation.
Pliny and Strabo both describe the city in its unmistakable features. Athenodoras the Stoic visited it, and related with admiration to Strabo, his friend, the excellence of the government under a native prince, and the security with which Romans and other foreigners resided there. To this cause Diodorus Siculus attributes the superiority of the Nabathaeans over the other Bedouin tribes :. For many of the tribes follow the business of transporting to the Mediterranean, frankincense, myrrh, and other costly spices, which are transferred to them by the carriers from Arabia Felix?
Strabo also writes that the merchandise of the Arabian Gulf used to be transported from Leuke Kome on the Red Sea, to Petra ; thence to Rhinokolura Al Arish , a town upon the Mediterranean; and so to other ports. The Palmyrian road supplied the east of Syria, where the city of Bostra, the capital of Arabia Petraea under the Romans, the present Bosrah, was known as another centre of oriental trade.
It looks almost as if the Wei-shu I 5 referred to these routes in saying :. The larger amount 40, would very nearly correspond to the length of the passage in stadia ; but as the tradition of the text seems to be strongly in favour of 10, li, we have to interpret this expression as having a general sense like the latin sexcenti, i. Just as the Chinese annals contain records of alleged embassies from western monarchs which, on close examination, we had to declare to have been private missions, allusions to Chinese embassies to Rome may be found in Roman authors, which, if approached in the same critical spirit, may be shown never to have been sent by the monarch from whom they alleged to come.

I, IV, c. They came from the shores of the eastern ocean ; a description which might be applied to the coast of China or Coromandel. They presented shining gems, and unknown animals. It appears that Chinese annals are as silent on this point as Roman records are on the various missions to China mentioned in Chinese historical works. The Chinese are, and have at all times been, so well at home in their own literature, that we may depend on this statement as a proof at least of no similar mission being mentioned in any recognised record as having gone further west previous to Kan Ying ; and this again implies that no Chinese has proceeded to the Far West in an official capacity, for such a fact would have been duly noted in the State Annals.
If any Chinese subject did at all penetrate to the west, previous to Kan Ying, he must have been a private traveller, and one who either never returned to China, or did so without calling public or official attention to his journey. If the Seres mentioned by Florus were actually Chinese they must have come by way of India, and with the Indian envoys ; they did certainly not come from the court of Han. This monarch asked him for an account of his country ; and the details of his reply were perhaps contained in the Wu-shih-wai-kuo-chuan, regarding which I regret to have obtained no information beyond the fact of its being quoted in certain cyclopedias.
