Ancient Persia was considered a major trade hub connecting the West and the East through the Silk Road. The Siraf Port in southern Iran is one of the many historical sites that testify to the country’s significant role in the ancient trade system. Siraf is located southeast of the Iranian city of Bushehr, roughly halfway along the northern shore of the Persian Gulf. The ancient city boasts a number of key historical sites dating back to the Parthian (248 BC-224 AD), Sassanid (224-651 AD) and Islamic eras.
