    "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."

    I got the 3 vol. epic when I traveled to this past harlem book fair.
    As a matter of fact, I bought it directly from the author, brother g.

    In this link, he gives the backdrop of memnon and his saga:

    If you dig what he says, then I recommend you get at brother g.

    I once read from "Black Athena" Volume 1 p.19 By Martin Bernal that Memnon may very well been Pharaoh Ammenemes
