Early civilizations in Ethiopia established wide-ranging trade relationships with the Roman Empire, the Arabian Peninsula, Egypt, China and India.

The Ethiopian civilization of Aksum produced the first indigenous coinage in Africa as seen in this example from the reign of King Endubis, the very first African king to mint coins. His reign lasted c. 270 ??? 300 A.D. (Courtesy of the Houston Museum of Natural Science)
