So, this should be my 100th post here. Which, to be honest, kind of shocks me. But, I thought, how about a fun little game?
Here you're trying to guess the Roman Emperor by the close up. I'll give you 3 different ones and if you get them right, I may do some more. I don't know how difficult these are - but we'll see. Good luck!

That first photo looked to be of high quality artistry, so I can see where people were guessing earlier but that hair swoop totally reminded me of my under-appreciated dude G! That was fun!

Yeah! Now that I see it, Tiberius does look a lot like that. I may have guessed that as well 😂. But you weren't fooled, so congrats. Glad you enjoyed it. 

 

And I've got some other ideas for different guessing games, so those will all come in time...

Oh yeah! With his "jelly roll" haircut, Gallienus always looks like he's ready to start singing doo-wop music!

The first one looks a bit like an Antioch mint Hadrian.

It's actually Cappadocia, Caesera I think but you were right with Hadrian! That was a tough one.

So it was:

-Hadrian

-Trajan

And really glad some of you found this fun, I think I'll make another little game... 🙂
