Zanzibar, where the Omani Sultan presided over a vast trading network of ivory, spices and slaves, to Dhofar, Oman, where frankincense was king, and then on to Ghadames, Libya, one of the oldest pre-Saharan cities, which became the trans-Saharan caravan junction for all of North Africa" -- Container.
