This is also a good opportunity to compare and contrast with your ongoing analysis of NW vs. NE Han, black man. Personally, I can't see any difference with NE Han by these pics, except for 1 Iraqi.
A lot of these people look more Mongolian than Roman..
2 villagers wearing their ancestral Roman regalia passed down from father to son since the time of Christ.
The subtitle goes something like, "Villagers of the lost Roman legion at the county fair, reenacting their forefathers' march to Persia and exile to China. Again, they are wearing the Roman uniforms passed down from their forefathers. I think it's time to start a petition to send to Berlusconi so that these guys could be granted Italian citizenship. They even inherit the guido mustache of their forefathers.
More.. I've become speechless at this point.
More lost Romans, some of whom do look Eurasian

'Guido' moustache, lol.
The Roman legionary was a clean-shaven fellow, if I'm not mistaken. I'm incredulous to this story from Liqian, yet one wonders what precisely is the motivation for patronizing the Italics? What are the claimants actually hoping to gain from this, and whose idea was it?
