Roman Elvis Sold

A Roman marble head that looks like Elvis – right down to the quiff – was sold for £24,000 at auction yesterday (42.000 $US). The 13-inch carving, which came from a 2nd century AD sarcophagus, was bought by an unnamed collector at a Bonhams sale in London. Antiquities specialist Georgiana Aitken said: “It bears an uncanny likeness to Elvis. It’s the quiff that does it. It wasn’t a hairstyle of the day as far as I know.”
