The Red Sea that ran north-south along the border of Ancient Egypt is a seawater inlet of the Indian Ocean, lying between Africa and Asia. Its name may have originated from one of these 3 possibilities: 1) Some ancient languages use colors to refer to cardinal directions and “red” refers to south, just as “black” refers to north; 2) The Red Sea borders the Egyptian Desert, also known as the “Red Land” for the soil is reddish in appearance; or 3) The sea may derive its name from the red-colored Trichodesmium erythraeum which bloom near the water’s surface.
