It is possible that Kan-t'o-li, a toponym occasionally mentioned in fifth- and sixth-century Chinese sources, was the first port in the Straits vicinity to exploit the growing Chinese market for Malay products. Kan-t'o-li has been tentatively located on Sumatra's southeast coast, at the eastern approaches to the Me1aka Straits. In this area several species of jungle trees are found which could have provided the resins accepted in China as substitutes for those of India and Persia. It is known that Kan-t'o-li's trade was based not only on the cartage of overseas goods b~lt on the export of forest products, perfumes and drugs for the Chinese market.

There have been several finds in Kedah and Prai (Province Wellesley) including fragmentary Indian inscriptions as well as Hindu and Buddhist images. The earliest of these has been attributed to the fourth century. Further pieces of Indian statuary have also been discovered near present-day mining districts of Perak. These include a Buddha image dating from the late fifth or early sixth century resembling the Gupta style of North India (c. AD 319-500) and various Buddha images from the eighth to tenth centuries.

The resemblances between archaeological finds excavated in Kedah, the Sarawak Delta and the east coast of Sumatra suggest that the oceans did serve to link the intervening coasts and that the peoples who lived here remained part of one cultural world. Chinese Trade and the Rise of Early Malay-Indonesian Entrepots Prior to the fifth century Chinese sources contain few references to the Nan Yang, the Southern Ocean, which was the general term used to refer to the Southeast Asian region. Interest in the Malay peninsula probably stemmed initially from Chinese relations with Funan, believed to have been a major kingdom or collection of kingdoms on the Lower Mekong River.
