The term ‘port’ in early South Asia can refer to at least four types of locations: landing places and marketplaces in texts, findspots of artifacts from across the seas, semi-permanent settlements with foreigners awaiting favorable monsoon winds, and access points for emporia with desirable trade goods including animal products (like ivory), forest tree products (like sap), agricultural products (like cotton), and human-made products (like metal alloys).
