The region appeared in European maps as 'The Republic of Hamasien'. In the late 19th century, Hamasien was briefly invaded and occupied by the Ethiopian Emperor Yohannes IV who granted control of the region to Ras Alula (Alula Engida). Ethiopian forces wrestled for control over the region with Ottomans initially and later with Italian colonialists. Following the death of Emperor Yohannes at the Battle of Gallabat, Hamasien was occupied by the Italians (Italy), who incorporated it into their colony of Eritrea and making one of its villages, Asmara, the capital of the colony, a status it retains today as the capital of the sovereign country of Eritrea.

On 11 September 1888, she was ordered to relieve HMS ''Dolphin'' (HMS Dolphin (1882)) at the besieged port of Suakin, Sudan where she engaged anti-Anglo-Egyptian forces led by Osman Digna for nearly a month. After the battle, the ''Gannet'' was assigned to perform surveying work throughout the Mediterranean, and then hydrographic work in the Red Sea until she returned to Sheerness and was decommissioned on 16 March 1895.

Graham eventually withdrew his forces. The Mahdi Army continued its sweep of victories. Kassala and Sannar fell soon after and by the end of 1885 the Ansār had begun to move into the southern regions of Sudan. In all Sudan, only Suakin

Domestic problems increased when the Neguses of both Gojjam and Shewa rebelled against Yohannes, and the Emperor had to turn his attention from the encroaching Italians to deal with his rebellious vassals. Yohannes brutally crushed the Gojjame rebellion

, but before he could turn his attention to Shewa news arrived that the Mahdist forces had sacked Gondar and burned its holy churches. He marched north from Gojjam to confront the armies of the Mahdi. Other commands included: the HMS ''Viper'' (HMS Viper (1854)), and the HMS ''Rinaldo'' (HMS Rinaldo (1860)) before his promotion to captain 24 November 1862, the HMS ''Basilisk'' (HMS Basilisk (1848)) (1865–1869), flag-captain to Sir Henry Kellett (1870–1872) and captain of the HMS

Ancient authorities are vague on the location of Ptolemais, and the site remains unidentified. The ''Periplus'' describes it as 3000 stadia (Ancient Greek weights and measures) south of the Moskhophagoi, and 4000 stadia north of Adulis, inside the regions ruled by Zôskalês, the king of Aksum; Pliny the Elder (N.H. 6.168) notes that Ptolemais was close to Lake Monoleus. G.W.B. Huntingford notes that Ptolemais has been identified both with the locales of Arqiqo and Suakin some 150 miles aapart, and notes that Suakin lay at the end of an ancient caravan route that links it to Barbar on the Nile.
