"Africa was a colony, a little enclave. [A]bout the 4th century...the Greeks would come to Lebus, now called Libya, to kind of put their ear to hear what was coming out of Egypt because they were barred from coming in en masse. It was not until the Persians captured Egypt in 525 B. C. under [the leadership of] Cambyses II that the Greeks were allowed in any large number. That little colony that the Greeks called 'Africa' later spread to now the entire continent. It started around the 4th dynasty, however, ancient people called the continent Corphye, Ortegya, Hesperia, Ammonis, Lebus and Ethiopia. However, the oldest documents that I have found by the Ethiopians themselves and the Moohrs, there is a name they call 'Alkebu-lan' and that's the oldest name that I know that the continent was ever called." -- Dr. Yosef ben-Jochannan
