Diodorus Siculus also said:
"The Ethiopians were in high favor with the Gods, they say they were the first of all men, whom he believes were the originators of the Egyptian civilization"

Diodorus Siculus said he believed that the Ethiopians were the originators of the Egyptian civilization. Let me remind you that the word Ethiopian comes from the Greek word "aithiops" which means "burnt face" because the Ethiopians were really Black in complexity. Diodorus Siculus thought these same people originated (built) the Egyptian civilization. Meaning the Ethiopians (Black people) built the first pyramids, built the first temples, built the first tombs, were the first Pharaohs, and were the first occupents of Egypt.

You are mentally challenged aren't you?
Let me just ask you a few qeustions.
Does your link not say Fayum mummies are from the Coptic period of Ancient Egypt? The Coptic period was 284-641 AD.
Greek invasion of Egypt was 332 BC
Roman invasion was 30 BC
By the time the Fayum mummies were around Egypt had already been conquered by Greeks for 300 YEARS and Romans for 300 YEARS. The Romans were still in control of Egypt when the Fayum mummies arived and they bare the likeness of Romans.
FAYUM MUMMIES ARE from the 1st CENTURY!

Well, does “Ethiopian” mean people from Ethiopia, or “black people”?

It seems that the early Egyptians descended mostly from people who'd been in the Nile Valley for a long time, even going back to the time before the Neolithic (farming).

They were black, but morphological and genetic analysis, as well as cultural remains, ally them with the people of Nubia.

Ethiopian mythological claims can't be taken literally. If Ethiopians claim that they were the first of all men, there is truth in that, since Homo sapiens did evolve in Ethiopia, but then I think there are plenty of other ethnic groups who claim to be the first humans.

Here's what your link says:
Mummy portraits or Fayum mummy portraits (also Faiyum mummy portraits) is the modern term given to a type of naturalistic painted portraits on wooden boards attached to mummies from the Coptic period. They belong to the tradition of panel painting, one of the most highly regarded forms of art in the Classical world. In fact, the Fayum portraits are the only large body of art from that tradition to have survived.

Mummy portraits have been found across Egypt, but are most common in the Faiyum Basin, particularly from Hawara and Antinoopolis, hence the common name. "Faiyum Portraits" is generally thought of as a stylistic, rather than a geographic, description. While painted Cartonnage mummy cases date back to pharaonic times, the Faiyum mummy portraits were an innovation dating to the Coptic period on time of the Roman occupation of Egypt.

Now if the Romans were ruling Egypt during the time of the Fayum mummies without a shadow of a doubt the Fayum mummies depict Romans.

Ethiopian is a Greek word strictly referring to the Ethiopians Black skin complexion. Its obvious they were really Black. And if your talking about early Ethiopians you should know that they were really really Black in complexion. They were the Blackest people to ever walk the earth.

You are missing the whole point. The point trying to be made was not Ethiopian mythology. It was Diodorus Siculus who came to the conclusion that the Ethiopians were the originaters of the Egyptian civilization. He even admitted that he believed this himself. The Ethiopians even claimed the Egyptians to have originated from them. If the Egyptians were not Black then he would have completely rejected the idea of Ethiopians originating Egyptian civilization.

No, I don't miss the point but I doubt statements made by ancient Greeks. They called many black people “Ethiopians” and didn't really know squat about Ethiopia.

I'm going by scientific (archaeological, genetic, etc.) evidence which shows the people of early Egyptian civilization to be related mostly to Nubians. Now that could mean they were also related to Ethiopians, but to which Ethiopians? They were black, yes, that isn't the issue. Not to me anyway.

Ethiopian comes from the Greek word "Aithiops" which means "burnt face" because the Ethiopians were Black in complexity. If anything the Greeks were referring to Black people when they used the name Ethiopian. This name can only apply to someone Black in complexity. Diodorus Siculus qeustioned the Ethiopians themselves about the Egyptians. He got it from out the Ethiopians own mouths that the Egyptians originated from them. The Ethiopians claimed the Egyptians to be a colony of Ethiopians. Now if the Egyptians weren't Black Diodorus would have completely rejected the idea of Ethiopians (Black people) to be the originators of the Egyptian civilization.

Now Diodorus Siculus even said it out his own mouth that he had come to the conclusion that the Ethiopians were the originators of the Egyptian civilization. Meaning he thought the Ethiopians (Black people) built Ancient Egypt and were the first inhabitants of it. This is fact.

What I'm saying is that we do not know to whom the Greek referred.“Ethiopians”, as you said, could be anyone black. So... when they said Ethiopians were the original Egyptians, they might have meant Nubians.

So, I know they are talking about black people, what I'm wondering is WHICH black people, because the Greeks used the word “Ethiopians” indiscriminately, NOT to mean what we mean today, people from Ethiopia, a modern country.

The archaeological evidence is that ancient predynastic and early dynastic Upper Egyptians were related to Nubians.
