The sandwich predates Sandwich?

According to this History of Sandwiches, people have been stuffing food between bits of bread and eating it that way for almost two millenia prior to the hard-core gambler John Montague (Fourth Earl of Sandwich) making a habit of having his valet provide his meals in an easy-to-eat-while-gambling form.

Ah, trivia.
