Socotra is an island in the Arabian Sea. It is the eponymous island of the Socotra archipelago and comprises approximately 95% of the landmass in said archipelago. Human activity on the island begins in the Lower Paleolithic. In Graeco-Roman times, the island appears as "Dioskouridou" in the Periplus of the Erythraean Sea.

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Socotra YEM

Socotra has clearly been part of maritime networks for some time. Recent fieldwork discovered inscriptions presumed to have been left by mariners from the first to sixth centuries. These texts were largely recorded in the Brāhmī script, but evidence also exists for South Arabian, Ethiopic, Greek, Palmyrene and Bactrian scripts and languages.
