Nubia was more than a simple "corridor". Its field of action extended over Saharan and central Africa via the Wadi Howar (west bank of the Nile between the Third and Fourth Cataracts), East Africa as far as the land of Punt and Asia by the Indian Ocean. Its zone of influence went from the Gash Delta, near the Red Sea, as far as the Tibesti Mountains towards the Upper Nile, further to the south. The river was its back bone.
