At the close of the period now under consideration the Nabahinah were of
overthrown, and even expelled from their original location in Haiar, by h : riah a
tu Ya'aribah, another indigenous family, who seem to have been Ya's-
connected with the chief of Rustaq.

On the coast, at this time somewhat neglected by tie native powers,
whose internecine struggles were carried on chiefly n the interior, the
Portuguese had long held sway; but their authority vas on the decline.
They still occupied Masqat, where they had first appeared in 1507 ; and
that place was, next to Hormuz, their principal miitary station m the
Gulf. There were probably Portuguese posts at Qu-yat and bar also,
but this is uncertain.
In 1616, probably at the invitation, and certainy with the assistance
of a native chief named 'Omair-bin-Himyar, the P.rtugncse attacked and
captured the Batinah seaport of Sohar, of which th- increasing tratt
caused a diminution in the receipts of their custons houses at Masqat
and Hormuz; the town was burned to the ground, and t e or,
taken by bombardment and assault, was permmently occupied by the
Portuguese* Whether this affair had any comection with the contest
between the Nabahinah and the Ya'aribah canmt be determined; bnt he
decline of the Nabahinah appears to have followed very closely on the
capture of Sohar by the Portuguese. In 162), as mentioned m the next
paragraph, the Portuguese, after the loss of Hormuz-their chief settle-
ment,-added Khor Fakkan to their possessions in Oman.
