While the Egyptians sometimes fought with the black Africans, they also employed them as soldiers. This legion, which is made up of tribesmen of Asyut, was copied in wood and animal skin and painted, was included in a Middle Kingdom tomb along with the farmers and domestics who would provide for the welfare of the deceased in the next world.
