[color=indigo][size=24]The old Name of Bahrain [/size][/colo

Tylos Smile

In the first century AD, Bahrain was referred to by the Greeks as "Tylos", the centre of pearl trading, when Nearchus came to discover it serving under Alexander the Great. The town of Muharraq was referred to as "Arados" (now there is "Arad" in Muharraq)[1].

While Bahrain was never incorporated into the Roman Empire it did become a centre for Christianity [2]: church records show that Bahrain was the seat of two of the five Nestorian bishoprics existing on the Arabian side of the Persian Gulf at the time of the arrival of Islam. It is uncertain when the two bishoprics were dissolved though they are known to have survived until 835. Nestorian Christianity left its traces in Muharraq, and Christian names, like the village of Dair (ie parish), Samahij (used to be the name of a bishop) remain until today. Muharraq was also the centre of the worship for the cult of Awal, and between the end of Tylos and the arrival of Islam, Bahrain was known by this term

Hop you love it thanks Very Happy
