Solomon imported animals in international shipping (1 Kings 10:22 ). The Hebrew term qoph may refer to apes (papio hamadrias arabicus ), using a loan-word from Egyptian, but the exact animal referred to by this term is far from certain, the animal apparently being an imported novelty for the people of Solomon's day.
