This portrait is of a high-ranking military officer from the Roman Empire. I drew it after reading an article about the recent discovery of skeletal remains from Roman-era Leicester in the UK, six of which display what appear to be African physical features. That shouldn't be surprising when you consider that the Roman Empire straddled parts of Africa (including Egypt) as well as the Middle East and Europe. Of course its population would be multicultural and multiracial!
