TRUTH !!
The culture of Libya pre-dates the Roman and Greek influences by thousands
of years.
There are many neolithic and early African sites of antiquity in Libya,
including spectacular rock art and engravings. Some, such as those at Messak
Sattafet and Messak Mellet, depict men and animals in a variety of poses and
activities. Some of these sites are at least ten thousand years old, and
date from a time when the Sahara region was a fertile savannah with many
lakes and rivers, and teeming with wildlife.
