This chapter follows the possibility of long-distance overland trade with central Asia of Roman Near East's caravan cities: Petra, Gerasa, Palmyra, and Dura-Europos. It draws on the Greek text Periplus Maris Erythraei (Voyage Around the Red Sea), which provides understanding of land trade with Asia: the various different routes of exchange, the political relations involved, and detailed accounts of the objects of trade.

Keywords:   overland trade, Asia, Roman Near East, caravan cities, Petra, Gerasa, Palmyra, Dura-Europos, Periplus Maris Erythraei, Red Sea
