…..What did the ancient Greeks look like?

For the world hit movie “300” about the ancient Spartans, the Jewish producer Zak Snyder ordered the Irish-Scottish actor Gerard Butler outrageously to dye his hair jet-black and wear dark contact lenses….


Butler’s real appearance, which I contend matches actually the ancient Greeks:


A Finnish-American sent me a link to a thread on the hair color of the ancient Greeks:

Were ancient Greeks as pale, fair and “Western” as Western society tends to portray them? How long has the West been doing this for? • /r/AskHistorians

I replied:

Thanks for the link to that thread, but how wimpy, beating-around-the-bush, and politically correct! They were terrified to admit the ancient Greeks, who founded our civilization, were much more nordic than the modern Greeks, who racially look more like Arabs, and whose country is racked by corruption and chaos.

The Greeks most certainly did have a word for blond, xanthos! I studied Classical Greek at Georgetown and got an A twice, in the fall of 1980 and the spring of 1981 (see transcript), and also I studied on my own koiné Greek, the lingua franca of the whole Eastern Mediterranean due to Alexander the Great’s conquests. The New Testament was also written in koiné Greek. (I studied koiné to better understand Christianity in the original language.)

(Click to enlarge; my Greek courses are on the right side.)


The ancient Greeks knew very well how blond the Germans were and many of the Kelts as well….and described them as xanthoi.  yellow-haired!


The Finn wrote me:

Our Finnish word for yellow is kelta, keltainen.

The Encyclopedia Britanica of 1926 states under ‘Celt

It is practice to speak of the dark-complexioned people of France, Great Britain and Ireland as “black Celts”. The philologists have added to the confusion by classing as “Celtic” the speeches of the dark-complexioned races of the west of Scotland and the west of Ireland. The Greeks termed all the fair-haired peoples dwelling north of the Alps as Keltoi.

I replied:

Very interesting!

In reality, the Kelts were blond, Indo-European latecomers who conquered the dark-haired peoples, drank milk (which non-nordics often cannot digest well) and thus were full of muscle-building protein.


In one of Plato’s dialogues, a speaker opines: “the dark-haired we call manly, and the blond the children of the gods.”

Most Greeks are depicted on pottery as dark-haired, which means brown — not jet-black hair like the Chinese.


The key is however the facial features and bone structure, which are northern-european, not semitic. The nose is straight, the forehead goes straight up, the mouth is flat, not bulging forward, and the chin juts out.

Semitic genes, by contrast, cause the face and skull itself to have a very different shape, and sadly, many modern Greeks have some of these genes from the nearby peoples.

Neanderthals & Semites


A comrade wrote: This is great but long….

I replied:

Every mental revolution merits a mountain of evidence…to see Jews as a prehistoric race….not as modern humans at all…and then as originally a roaming horde of outcasts and criminals, the Habiru (Hebrews) that once plagued the Near East, and whose “religion” is mere window-dressing and the cynical justification of their chosen life — of crime.



I honor the now vindicated, courageous, visionary, part-Jewish author Michael Bradley of Alabama (and now Toronto, Canada) (www.michaelbradley.info)

His seminal 1992 book Chosen People from the Caucasus states that semitic peoples have Stone Age neanderthal genes in significant amounts,

…and this genetic makeup encourages violence, fanaticism and terribly oppression of women.



This book by the Jewish author Samuel Roth reveals the entire radical hatred that Jews feel for Gentiles: http://www.jrbooksonline.com/roth.htm� �

Here is the half-Jewish Bradley’s book on the violent, neanderthalic nature of Jews.

Depictions of trolls in “mythology” always resemble those of neanderthals, raising the question if the myths about trolls and ogres recall actual neanderthals (from the movie “Troll II”)

Where the nordic genes come from is no mystery…. the “gods” were extremely advanced humans, whom I call the exonordics.

  1. Hi, Mr de Nugent,

    My take on the hair colour of the Ancient Greeks is that it varied according to time and place, which will account for any conflicting descriptions given in Classical literature concerning their physical traits. When one comes across quotes by ancient commentators of Grecians being blonde or brunette, I feel its best to assume the writers in question were primarily refering to the prevailing hair colour of a particular part of Greece at whatever particular point in history they lived. Just as pre-industrial revolution Britain had areas where one or other hair colour predominated, I believe Ancient Greece likewise would’ve been no different. Strangely many Greeks today resemble Sumerian sculpture more than Classical Greek sculpture. Such Armenoid types may have been present in the region alongside the indigenous Mediterraneans well before the first Nordic Proto-Greek conquerors settled there, but presumably they subsequently increased in number due to later Hellenistic period soldiers returning to Greece with Near Eastern brides and their families. Please do more articles on our ancient heritage!

    Take care, Mr. de Nugent

  2. Wow… I had no idea it boiled down to the neanderthal vs. the cro-magnon. It’s an interesting theory. I was just visiting this site to find out what the ancient Greeks looked like. I’m 100% Irish btw… but whatever, I don’t find this offensive or know if there is any actual evidence to support this theory.

    So what is your stance on people of African descent or Aboriginals from the Americas and Australia; how do they fit into this genetic equation?

  3. Cro Magnons were Black…….

    Greeks were a combo population. At first Black and then overun by Dorian and Ionians …. hence a “mulatto” and then dark white population over time.

    Most of those marble statues are fakes made in the renaissance. They rarely used hard marble in sculpture: it was too hard. they use bronze and softer more porous stones.
