Mare Erythraeum is a region on Mars. It is a very large dark dusky region of Mars that can be viewed by even a small telescope.
The name comes from the Latin for the Arabian Sea, because it was originally thought to be a large sea of liquid water. It was included in Percival Lowell's 1895 map of Mars.
