§ Swahili Coast

Parts of the area that are today considered Swahili Coast were known as Azania or Zingion in the Greco-Roman era , and as Zanj or Zinj in Middle Eastern and Chinese literature from the 7th to the 14th century. Historical documents including the Periplus of the Erythraean Sea and works by Ibn Battuta
Ibn Battuta
describe the society, culture, and economy of the Swahili Coast at various points in its history.

The rise of the Swahili Coast city-states can be largely attributed to the region's extensive participation in a trade network that spanned the Indian Ocean
