It looks like Elvis might have been rocking Rome almost 2,000 years ago after a marble carving - the spitting-image of the king - was revealed. The 1,800-year-old Roman bust is now due to go under the hammer as part of a...

Perhaps Elvis didn't die and was abducted by aliens and spirited away back in time :lmfao::lmfao:

I don't know about this one.:hmm: I thinking fake.

It is gonna go for auction among many other ancient Roman items. First i thought of fake but it just can't be so... This is an original Roman sculpture. Amazing... If there are carvings of a helicopter and a radar and ufos in the Egyptian pyramids (i can show you a photo of it) then this one is not a surprise at all... Still many unexplained discoveries from ancient history... This must be real. If not, i apologize for my foolishness in advance.

frankly, my susopicious mind is giving me a warning about that bust! though i have to admit that i am not an expert but THAT haircut does not look roman to me!!!! mind the way the head is stuck directly (without a neck) to that stand - which is not typically for roman sculptures at all.

nor the fact that only the frontal haircut is worked out in details but not the back of the head as well. for comparison just google for some "roman busts" and find out for yourselves.

cheers, AT
