SEBRIDAE

SEBRIDAE (Σεβρίδαι, Ptol. 4.7.33), or SOBORIDAE (Σοβορίδαι, Ptol. 4.7.29), an Aethiopian race, situated between the Astaboras (Tacazze) and the Red Sea. They probably correspond with the modern Samhar, or the people of the “maritime tract.” There is some likelihood that the Sembritae, Sebridae, and Soboridae are but various names, or corrupted forms of the name of one tribe of Aethiopians dwelling between the upper arms of the Nile and the Red Sea.
