The history of relations between Rome and Nubia has one constant: a permanent concern among the Romans and earlier among the Persians, Greeks and others to gain a foothold in Egypt and from there to extend into the interior of Africa. In their contact with Nubians, the Romans resorted both to diplomacy and warfare. There are clear traces of both peaceful and bellicose relations between Rome and Nubia in the writings of authors such as Pliny the Elder, Seneca αnd Strabo.
