A pendant from ancient Egypt
Scribes and civil servants formed the upper class in ancient Egypt, referred to as the "white loincloth class" in reference to the white linen garments they wore to indicate their rank.
This upper class emphasizes its social status in art and literature. Just below the nobility are priests and architects who had specialized training in their fields. Although there is no evidence to indicate that slavery was practiced at that time, its possible extent and prevalence remain unknown.
