View Categories Home > Catalog > |Asian Coins| > |Sri Lanka| > BB13750Sri Lanka (Ceylon), c. 4th - 5th Century A.D., Indo-Roman Imitative Sri Lanka is a small island nation around 31 km from south of India. Annius Plocamus, a Roman freedman, visited the island, spurring Sri Lanka to send a delegation to Rome during the reign of Claudius. A Roman named Sopatros traveled to Sri Lanka, probably in the 5th century. The ancient port of Mantota may have been an important port of call between China and Rome.
