Carmania

Background

Carmania, known in Greek as Καρμανία or Karmanía was a satrapy of the Achaemenid Empire. Not much is known about this region, as it was most likely considered by the Persians as part of Persis. However, it was mentioned by Arrian and is believed to have bordered Gedrosia. It is believed to have been equivalent to the modern Kerman Province in Iran.

Some classical authors such as Ptolemy note two major distinct geographic regions with Carmania. The southern areas were known for their fertile soils and teak wood, while the north was known as Carminia Deserta or "Desert Carmania" and went all the way to Parthia and Aria.
