This source provide a myriad of sources regarding the extremely positive viewpoint that some Greeks and Romans had for the ancient Kingdom of Nubia. They believed Nubia was the land of legends and myths, a place perfect to tell utopian based stories.

This source confirms the Greeks and Romans viewed the Egyptians and Ethiopians as black peoples a part of Africa. This source also mentions Moors with “curly” hair and black Moors, as well.

This source confirms the notion that in the Greco-Roman realm the Ethiopians were viewed as being the elder of Egyptians. This is significant because this aligns with Cush (credited with being the founder of Ethiopia) being the older brother of Mizraim (credited with being the founder of Egypt), but it also aligns with Ezekiel 29:14 alluding to the Egyptians considering Upper Egypt/Pathros (which was at one point one could argue was a part of Nubia) to be their home.
