In the south of Israel is the biblical town of Eloth. Not much is said in the bible about this town other than a few references, but many things can be said for this important port. In the bible Solomon uses the port town to build a fleet of ships, to travel to the riches of Ophir and brings back huge quantities of Gold. This massive haul is recorded in first Kings.
1Ki 9:26 And king Solomon made a navy of ships in Eziongeber, which is beside Eloth, on the shore of the Red sea, in the land of Edom.
1Ki 9:27 And Hiram sent in the navy his servants, shipmen that had knowledge of the sea, with the servants of Solomon.
1Ki 9:28 And they came to Ophir, and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and brought it to king Solomon.
