Contest #356 answer: Run, Banda Islands, Indonesia

Run (a.k.a. Pulau Run) is one of the smallest Banda Islands in the Indonesian Archipel.
It was of great importance to the nutmeg trade in the 17th century and thus of great value.
With the treaty of Breda, which ended the second Dutch-Anglo war in 1667, run was exchanged against Manhattan (!)
