What is happening in North East Africa in 30BCE

The land of Nubia has benefited from the expanding economies of the Middle East and Mediterranean.

Both the trade northward along the river Nile to the Mediterranean, and the Red Sea trade to India, has grown. Nubia’s trade goods are ivory, leopard skins, slaves, ostrich feathers, ebony and gold. The sources of this trade, hunting and mining, and the trade itself, are under the direct control of the kings of Kush, and their kingdom is reaching a height of its prosperity.

Despite some hostilities with the Romans as they take control of Egypt from the Ptolemies, the kingdom of Kush is set to continue to flourish.
