Sarapion was briefly mentioned in Ptolemy's Geographia as one of the harbours a trader would encounter after sailing in a southernly direction on the Indian Ocean, passing along the way by the Market of Spices (Damo) and the emporium of Opone. The town is believed by modern scholars to have been positioned in the vicinity of Mogadishu and Warsheikh in present-day south-central Somalia.
