The Indian peafowl is the oldest ornamental bird recorded in history, dating back to the 10th-century B.C.E. Often argued who first exported the peafowl from their native lands of Asia, King Soloman of Israel and Judah during 1000B.C.E is among the first to own these exotic birds. Peafowl were transported to temples and palaces across the Mediterranean by Phoenician traders, including to the pharaohs of ancient Egypt.[1] When the peafowl arrived in Greece, they were viewed as curiosities and initially kept in a private zoo on Samos island. By the 4th century B.C.E., owning peafowl was a common luxury in Greece and Rome, used for decoration and meat among the ruling class.
