Kushites were found fighting for both Persia and Greece, and we know from Herodotus and other Greek reporters that part of the Persian army of King Xerxes was composed of Kushite archers (Herodotus vii.69-70). They were recruited for their skill with a bow.

Wrapped in the skins of lions and leopards and with bodies daubed in both vermilion made from the powdered mineral cinnabar and white made from chalk powder, these warriors were a frightening sight to behold.
