We don't know. But the concept of a brass tube, flared at one end, and with a mouthpiece to buzz the lips against at the other end, was in common use at the time of the Roman Empire. Valves came much later, of course. The Bugle has more flare to the tube, in fact my Trumpet teacher taught us that the difference between "trumpet family" and "bugle family" is that trumpet family instruments are 1/3 flared tube, 2/3 straight tube, while bugle family is 2/3 flared tube, 1/3 straight tube.
