MEMNONENSES

Eth. MEMNONENSES (Μεμνονεῖς), a tribe of Aethiopians, who dwelt between the Nile and the Astapus, north of the peninsular region of Meroe. (Ptol. 4.8.114.) The name was not an indigenous one, but given by the Greek geographers to one of the Nubian tribes, among whom they placed their legend of Memnon, son of Aurora.
