Shades of Memnon: The African hero of the Trojan War and the Keys ot Ancient World Civilization: Book One by Gregory Walker

Tales of Memnon have inspired poets and sages for 3000 years, portraying an amazing figure whose name became associated with statues along the Nile, with temples and tombs in ancient Turkey and Iran and with artwork and literature from ancient Greece and Rome. Celebrated by early Greek writers, Memnon was granted immortality by the gods in "The Ethiopis," the third epic poem related to the Trojan War.
