It shows the beauty of (real) Mediterranean women. This is probably how a lot of women in ancient Greece/Persia/Phoenicia looked like. The ancient Greeks were mostly Mediterraneans along with some Alpines and Dinarics: A good example of a (real) Mediterranean was the Athenian statesman Pericles: link A good example of an alpine was Socrates: link And a good example of a dinaric was Aristippus: link Whereas the population inhabiting modern Greece seems to be a mixture of slavs,albanians,turks,semites and north Africans. Which also explains the large number of the Y-DNA haplogoups J2 and E1b1b found amongst modern Greeks. Comments are closed.
