This is a portrait of King Juba II of ancient Mauretania. One might ask how do we know this? Well, simply put, his name is carved at the bottom right hand side, however, this photograph does not show it very good. He is the second most famous person to emerge into contemporary popularity as being responsible for this Tomb being relocated in North America. The famous ancient personages who will be most notably rewarded with modern popularity because of this Tomb are in order: Alexander Helios, King Juba II, Cleopatra VII, Cleopatra Selene and Octavia, Augustus Caesar's sister. This picture was taken by Warren Dexter.
