Herodotus mentions a legendary 'City of Dionysus' lost in the desert sands, which may be the origin of the Zerzura legend.The Greek god Dionysus is associated with the Eleusinian mystery cult of ancient Greece, based on the use of an entheogenic plant: origins of sacred mushroom cults have been traced by scholars to the Sahara, in particular the Tassili-n-Ajjer area of Algeria, which boasts rock-painting dated as early as 10,000 BC.

"The first European reference to Zerzura is in an 1835 account by the English Egyptologist John Gardner Wilkinson, based on a report by an Arab who said he had found the oasis while searching for a lost camel.
The city is guarded by black giants who keep anyone from going in and coming out.
However, this may be a reference to the black Tebu people, nomads in Chad and Libya whose ancestors used to raid oases out in the Sahara.
In the following year, Almásy found the third of the "Zerzura" wadis, actually rain oases in the remote desert.
On the other hand, Bagnold considered Zerzura as a legend that could never be solved by discovery.
