Mummy portraits or Fayum mummy portraits (also Faiyum mummy portraits) is the modern term given to a type of naturalistic painted portrait on wooden boards attached to Egyptian mummies from the Coptic period. They belong to the tradition of panel painting, one of the most highly regarded forms of art in the Classical world. In fact, the Fayum portraits are the only large body of art from that tradition to have survived.

Mummy portraits have been found across Egypt, but are most common in the Faiyum Basin, particularly from Hawara in the Fayum Basin (hence the common name) and the Hadrianic Roman city Antinoopolis. "Faiyum Portraits" is generally thought of as a stylistic, rather than a geographic, description. While painted cartonnage mummy cases date back to pharaonic times, the Faiyum mummy portraits were an innovation dating to the Coptic period at the time of the Roman occupation of Egypt.[1]

Why is this used as image of a "Roman" again? Do you have some agenda?

This.

Argentina received Italians from all over Italy and we have all sorts of Italian genotypes here.

Typically Italians have light brown, dark brown or black hair. Light brown-haired Italians are usually blonde during childhood, and their hair darkens with age. (That's what happened to me, it's a typically mediterranean thing as far as I know)

Adult blonde Italians are not the majority, but they are not that uncommon either.

I wasn't saying that. Italians are a Mediterranean people. Their skin tans rather than freckles, etc. But the Roman world was very "multicultural".

The Ptolemaic Dynasty looked like that.
Cleopatra was White European.

I want Cleopatra to jump on my dick with her asshole in a squatting position.

Thoughts?

I have no idea why so many people want to identify with the Romans.

Have you ever even read their history? They are literally exactly like how Italians have always been, greedy, sleazy backstabbing, superstitious, arrogant and pompous beyond measure.

Left: full of loud Italians and traffic but also plenty of nice restaurants and pretty buildings
Right: full of Turks and Africans and ugly buildings thanks to allied bombing, and a super highway but only more of the same to visit

Weather's nicer too

Im not discrediting the accomplishments of the Romans, but they were still people with horrible flaws and pretending they were a mythical race of precursor ubermench and that having your "team" be linked by very, very dilluted bloodlines to a bunch of delinquents and rejects who one day kidnapped and raped a bunch of Sabine girls and started a civilization that way, makes you the "chosen one"? Good grief.

They were just people. They started from nothing. They persevered against all odds. They were infinitely cruel and devious, and they were merciful and wise, they built as much as they destroyed, they could be dilligent or neglectful, they made a million mistakes and a few more enlightened decisions. All people on earth are here right now because their ancestors had some of these traits, either by direct contact or by their own adaptation. History doesn't stop, there is no winner in this contest to be seen, and you know what? The Romans are fucking gone. It's between us now.

you have a point, there was no "roman" ethnicity, the tribe of the romans was latin, but after their expansion, all roman citizens were romanized/latinized, except the more civilized peoples of the east (greeks, copts, syriacs, armenians, jews)

the latins were concentrated mostly in todays lazio(latium) province of italy and their related italic cousin tribes were all east and south of lazio

basically, southern and central Italy was the ethnic homeland of the romans and their kin
