Ancient Greeks meeting Ancient Egyptians?

Since the story I'm working on is based purely on mythology (currently Theseus if that will help) I have no idea how to go about researching this question. I've done a bit (I searched for "Ancient Egyptians meeting Ancient Greeks" for instance, but I got a lot of results involving Alexandria.) The one site I did find that seemed like it might have been helpful is gone now, and I wasn't sure how reliable the source was anyway.

Basically, would the Greeks in Theseus' time have ever known about the Egyptians? And if so, what sort of interactions would they likely have had?

ETA: Short answer: Yes, lots of trading. Thank you!
