Persons Of What Nation Are On This Fresco?

Well, the main question of this post I just wrote in the title. This is the fresco from our excavations, It has to be from XIII century. Because I'm Russian and lived some years in Caucasus, the persons on the fresco seem to me Caucasians. (click on the photo).

Other our volunteers say, they think it's semitic type of the face. If so, I say, the hairs have to be frizzy. The face of the first Saint on the left is very different.

What do you think about it?

  2. Probably you are right. It is hardly possible that they are Caucasians but there were great relations between Italy and Middle East in that period. Thank you for remembering me about it.
