The Hebrew Bible describes how the queen of Sheba meets Solomon. The queen is described as visiting with a number of gifts including gold, spices and precious stones. When Solomon gave her “all her desire, whatsoever she asked.”
Sheba is typically identified as Saba, a nation once spanning the Red Sea on the coasts of what are now Eritrea, Somalia, Ethiopia and Yemen, in Arabia Felix. Arabia Felix was the Latin name previously used by geographers to describe the southern part of the Arabian Peninsula.
The biblical kingdom of Sheba was an ancient Semitic civilization of Saba in Southern Arabia, between 1200 BCE until 275 CE, with its capital in Marib. Sabaeans are mentioned in the biblical books of Job, Joel, Ezekiel, and Isaiah, and in ayat 2:62, 5:69, and 22:17 of the Quran.
