Sopara near Mumbai was a prosperous port of the west coast of India since the beginning of the first millennium B.C. till as late as 15th century A.D. Known under the names of Shutparak, and Suppara and identified with Ophir of Solomon’s times by some scholars, this port center, an outlet to the trade of Deccan, has a rich inscriptional reference. Since 1882 AD, the neighbourhood has been worked by archaeologists to reveal rich findings at least since 3rd century B.C. spread over an area.
