In older literature (e.g. Dana) sometimes listed under the obsolete name "Abyssinia". Note also that some references to "Ethiopia" localities may now be in the newly (since 1993) independent Eritrea (qv).

Ethiopia is divided into ethno-linguistically based regional states (plural: kililoch; singular: kilil) and two astedader (cities). Several changes of province names and areas have happened in the 1990s.

Before 1996, Ethiopia was divided into 13 provinces, many derived from historical regions.
