Further information: Lothal and Indus Valley Civilisation The region around the Indus river began to show visible increase in both the length and the frequency of maritime voyages by BCE. The trade in lapis lazuli was carried out from northern Afghanistan over eastern Iran to Sumer but during the Mature Harappan period an Indus colony was established at Shortugai in Central Asia near the Badakshan mines and the lapis stones were brought overland to Lothal in Gujarat and shipped to Oman, Bahrain and Mesopotamia. Archaeological research at sites in Mesopotamia, Bahrain , and Oman has led to the recovery of artefacts traceable to the Indus Valley civilisation, confirming the information on the inscriptions. Among the most important of these objects are stamp seals carved in soapstone , stone weights, and colourful carnelian beads Most of the trade between Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley was indirect. Shippers from both regions converged in Persian Gulf ports, especially on the island of Bahrain known as Dilmun to the Sumerians. Numerous small Indus-style artefacts have been recovered at locations on Bahrain and further down the coast of the Arabian Peninsula in Oman. Stamp seals produced in Bahrain have been found at sites in Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley, strengthening the likelihood that the island may have acted as a redistribution point for goods coming from Mesopotamia and the Indus area There are hints from the digs at Ur , a major Sumerian city-state on the Euphrates, that some Indus Valley merchants and artisans bead makers may have established communities in Mesopotamia. The world's first dock at Lothal BCE was located away from the main current to avoid deposition of silt. Tools found at this site indicate boat building, perhaps for coastal trade. Eudaimon Arabia was called fortunate, being once a city, when, because ships neither came from India to Egypt nor did those from Egypt dare to go further but only came as far as this place, it received the cargoes from both, just as Alexandria receives goods brought from outside and from Egypt.
