“It seems certain that classical historians and geographers called the whole region from India to Egypt, both countries inclusive, by the name Ethiopia, and in consequence they regarded all the dark-skinned and black peoples who inhabited it as Ethiopians. Mention is made of Eastern and Western Ethiopians and the Westerners, Africans.”
