This maritime trade reached a peak during the time of Jesus, necessitating the construction of a small Greco-Roman merchant colony to manage the extensive trade between India and the Roman Empire. This colony was sufficiently large to justify the building of a Roman temple, which is clearly shown on ancient maps. The precise location of Musiris has hitherto been one of the secrets of the classical world.

Interesting ... thanks for that info
I find it compelling that a comparison can be drawn between Isis and Mary
Most compelling to me is their shared Immaculate conception of a Son ... though the details of the "magical" conception vary a lot in their detail.
Err... Isis was a married woman and was (among other things) a sex goddess. She and Osiris had sex (the Egyptians weren't fussy about this.) It was hardly an immaculate conception.
