Tales of a certain African country as a mythical land at the farthest edges of the earth are recorded in some of the earliest Greek literature of the eighth century B.C., including the epic poems of Homer. (It appears twice in the Iliad and three times in the Odyssey.) Greek gods and heroes, like Menelaos, were believed to have visited this place on the fringes of the known world.
