'Eritrea' is the name given to the Red Sea by Greek tradesmen in the third century B.C. Officially the State of Eritrea is a country in the Horn of Africa. It is bordered by Sudan to the west, Ethiopia in the south, and Djibouti in the east. The northeastern and eastern parts of Eritrea have an extensive coastline along the Red Sea, across from Saudi Arabia and Yemen.
