Ephorus Says the Tartessians Reported that Ethiopians Overran Libya and Some of them Stayed in Dyris (Atlas Mt.)

Source: Strabo Geography Book 1 Chapter 2 (End) (Chicago University) 7 B.C. From the Strabo source, "Ephorus says the Tartessians report that Ethiopians overran Libya as far as Dyris,​80 and that some of them stayed in Dyris, while others occupied a great part of the sea-board; and he conjectures it was from this circumstance that Homer spoke as he did: "Ethiopians that are sundered in twain, the farthermost of men. 80 The barbarian name for the Atlas mountains.

A Nubian Lady in Ancient Cyprus

Source: A NUBIAN LADY IN CYPRUS (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego) 2020 A.D. From the source, "Since 1993, a team from Princeton University has been working in Cyprus, excavating Marion, one of the ancient city kingdoms, and its successor city, Arsinoe. During exploration, two sanctuaries, dating to the Iron Age, were discovered, each containing an extraordinary number of votives, with terracotta sculptural offerings numbering over 30,000 fragments. In the earlier sanctuary, dedicated to a female deity who had affinities with a Near Eastern fertility goddess, a remarkable, nearly life-size terracotta female head was recovered, which had originally belonged to a full-length statue.…

Source: Review on JSTOR (Israel Exploration Society) 2003 A.D. Note: 251 of the source. This source confirms that individuals who were named Cushi (we know several Israelites were) were of dark complexion. This source confirms a "dark colorization" that ancient Israelites operated on because they could only produce individuals who physically resembled Ethiopians if a fair number of them were already some shade of brown skin which various different peoples of African, near east, and Indus descent have.

Source: Black Athena Writes Back Martin Bernal Responds to His Critics (Duke University Press) 2001 A.D. Note: Page 66 of the source. Note: Page 66 of the source. I believe this source is crucial for understanding how the brilliant Professor Frank M. Snowden had a hard time considering ancient Egypt, at its core, to be a black civilization. Professor Frank M. Snowden at times contradicted himself because he did acknowledge the blackness of ancient Egyptians at times but other times he neglected to do do. This source provides commentary that Professor Frank M. Snowden was being way to limited, most…

Black Berbers of North Africa Equate With The Garamantes Or Ethiopians

Source: The Berbers of Morocco: A History of Resistance (Bloomsbury Publishing) 2020 A.D. Note: From the source. This source confirms that the black Berbers are the original group of Berbers in the northern regions of Africa. Some have equated them with the Garamantes or Ethiopians who moved northwest. I do acknowledge that the Berbers eventually became a racially diverse group at a fairly early stage, but we do believe the black groups came first.
