Various classical authors tell of the presence of cotton in ancient Egypt. Herodotus, who visited the country in the fifth century BC, tells of clothes, some of them cotton, presented by Amasis (26th Dynasty). Pliny (1st century AD) describes the presence in Upper Egypt and Ethiopia 'which lies on the southern border of Egypt', of bushes and trees 'on which wool grows'. The oldest cotton finds date to the Graeco-Roman Period. A great deal of cotton has been found from the Coptic Period in particular. There is no proof that cotton was known in Egypt before this time, unlike, for example, India, where woven cotton has been found dating to the third millenium BC.
