Really surprised to see Mexico there! It's mentioned in The Merchant of Venice, apparently.

Ethiopia? (Romeo) "What lady's that which doth enrich the hand of yonder knight? O she doth teach the torches to burn bright. It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night like a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear." That's from memory from 'O' levels in 1971.
