Nubia was a country to the south of Egypt.

Early Dynastic Egypt

During the reign of Narmer pottery sherds from Nubia have been discovered bearing his serekh but there seems to be invasion of the country. The reign of Hor-Aha may show the initial invasion of Nubia mentioned on a label from Abydos[1] where the country is first mentioned as the 'T3-sety'[2].
