    I don't know whether the hair colour is on purpose but I'd say Germanic.

    I don't see anything particularly Mediterranean about him at all. In particular, that isn't a "Med" nose at all.

    Ivor Novello looked more "southern" than does the bust.

    @Azzurro,
    Not kosher to cheat when playing games like this.

    I repeat there's nothing particularly "Med" about him, certainly nothing Caucasus like.

    An Alpinid/Dinaroid and Dinarid/Alpinoid complex with few Nordoid spices. Today, he could be anything, but mostly I'll place him to north Italy, central Europe and west.(An authentic and genuine old fashioned approach for the old guys to remember end the newbies to learn... buahaha lol)
    Dont match to me, as -the most representative or common- continental Greek, and the possibility to be Etruscan, not either.

    (for tough players)
    Can someone classify him also... carefull could be a trap for the amateurs... and a Waterloo for the experts!!!

    (Well , if you have magnifier lens at home would help)

    Alpine Northern Italian


    Nordic Northern Italian


    My brother is the image of the first; my father is a combination of the first and second.

    I don't see anything particularly Dinaric about him. I can't see the back of his head, but it looks as if it would be round. The nose looks broken.


    He would fit in northern Italy, but he would fit in lots of other places as well, as you say.


    Is Ross Perot Dinaric too?

    Unless for Dinaric you're thinking of someone like Goran Visnijik?


    Very good looking whatever the classification.

    I just happened to remember this:

    Henry Tudor...amazing...



    One quarter royal French (grandson of Catherine of Valois), One quarter Welsh squires, and half Beaufort, descendants of John of Gaunt, British royalty.

    That statue sort of reminds me of Mike Pence, especially with the hair.

    I don't see it at all. I think he looks more "northern" than anything; totally European.

    He also reminds me of the cartoon character Race Bannon from Johnny Quest.

    Mike Pence is the best guess so far. I'm serious. Very Europid type.

    Ha, ha ... I like Pence as classification too. That is probably as good ethnic classification as any today for someone from some 2500 years ago.
    Hmm ... so now I am intrigued, does Pence have the reproduction of The Orator?

    Thank you for this interesting teaser Pax Augusta, and introducing this beautiful artwork of its time. It intrigued me and led me to a lot of learning. I also enjoyed reading your and IronSide related posts on the different thread.
