    Was he Kemetian? I thought he was Ethiopian.
    Maybe he was Afram? He kinda looks like the person in your avatar. :P

After the rise of Axum, people from Eritrea/Ethiopia would have been referred to as Axumite or Abyssinian.

    Prior to the rise of Axum, Egyptians had contacts with the people of "the Land of Punt", an area located to the south of Egypt, where the people were regarded by Egyptians as their kin. Punt is usually (but not always) placed on the African side of the Red Sea.

    Some of the darker Egyptians would probably have been indistinguishable from Horners in the eyes of Europeans, anyway.
    we have evidence that egyptians distinguished themselves from nubians, nubians where painted as pitch black and negroid, while egyptians where brown and caucasoid, much more similar to the asiatics and libyans in facial features. and sure some of the lower egyptians would probably be indistinguishable from nubians eventually, as the result of admixture between the two, just like how majority of horners are mixed with caucasoids today.

    also the black ethiopians mentioned in libya could be tuaregs? as for them invading Libya or tunisia sounds like a fairytale, but would be interesting to read more actual information about it, if there is any evidence of it.

    Thanks.

    I think he was an Ethiopian slave who became a strong Greek athlete of god tier status or something like that.

    He actually looks like he could be mixed though, certainly not pure Nord at least I don't think.

    How do you know these people are northern Indians/Pakies and not the descendants of Southern/central indians migrants to the North who were born in the North and identify as Northern indian ignoring they're originally from the South?

    Why would whole crowds of N. Indians be the "descendants of Southern/central indians migrants to the North who were born in the North and identify as Northern indian ignoring they're originally from the South"? Some of those pictured are actually from Bangladesh. Most Northern Indians don't look Aishwarya Rai, who's actually a Southern Indian Dravidian.

    because there are many mass migrations especially If one side of the country has better climates or is richer,a crowd can even be composed by 10 or 20 member from the same family,indians have alot of children so in a decade any part of india could be repopulated by hundreds or thousands of Southern indians,I can go to Compton take pics of crowds and claim Aframs to be the majority of the USA and native to that region If I was ignorant about their society and who they consider native to that region and who's not

    fail,you cant use bangladeshis to argue your point, they are related to bengalis who live in east india, not north indians, you should try posting punjabs instead, and btw there are plenty of persians with brownish skin. idiot

    since the nose is broken in that statue you cant really tell, but from his other features i would say he looks like most other greek statues, i dont see how he looks ethiopian at all.
