: Punt is not in Africa; it is the Mediterranean east coast area once known as Phonecia, from where the Phonecians were driven out by the Assyrians in the 700s b.c. and founded Carthage. The Carthage/Romes wars for control of the Mediterranean were called the Punic wars as the natives of Carthage at the time were referred to as Punics from Punt. Hatshesput travelled to Punt to meet the fabulous King Soloman.They exchanged gifts, she receiving many plantts and young trees which were placed in the gardens of her remarkable palace on the west bank of Thebes. Her palace is one of the most striking sites of ancient Egypt, the architecture of which is unique. It is possible that it is based on Solomans famed temple at Jerusalem. Soloman and Hats slept together and the Ethiopians know to this day that the issue arising form this union is their royal family line whih came to an end when King Haile Salassie and his family were murdred by the communists in the 1960s.

: Hat's trip to Soloman is recorded inthe bible as the visit of the Queen of Sheba. Sheba is the ancient Greek name for the capital of Ethiopia. To the ancient Greeks Ethipia meant Egypt.
