'The sacrificies as well as the ancient ceremonies of the Athenians and Egyptians are the same. The Eumolpidae came from the Egyptian priests, while the Kerykes from the pastophoroi. They are the only ones from all the Greeks who swear by Isis and their ideas and manners are the same as those of the Egyptians.' From Diodoros' of Sicily Library of History. Book 1:29(4-5).
