He reminds me of this "LOST" actor of South-Indian descent:http://mediamass.net/jdd/public/documents/celebrities/2456.jpg

No. Here's the description of how they did the reconstruction (a lot of cheating really):


The condition of the skull did not allow Houlton to reconstruct the regions around the eyes and nose. To compensate, Houlton and Schepartz generated an average face template using a face pool of 50 modern Greek males aged 25-35 years.

"This is the closest possible population group data we can access in relation to the Griffin Warrior. The nose from the template was then used to facilitate the nasal reconstruction and identify the most likely angle of the eyes," Houlton said.

He noted that features such as skin and hair color, which would require DNA information, could only be assumed according to identified trends in Mycenaean and Minoan artifacts. "We used many types of comparative information, including Mycenaean wall paintings for the hairstyle," Schepartz told Discovery News.

There's probably also guess-work involved in deciding on the form of the man's lips and ears from what I've read about facial reconstructions:


Determination of facial feature morphology should follow scientific procedure, except for the lips and ears, which require a degree of artistic interpretation.

The form of his lips and ears along with his overall pigmentation is being guessed (especially in the case of pigmentation) if there's no genomic data. Heck, if his hair was already decomposed (it most likely was) then the texture/type of his hair was being guessed too.

So basically this is a compost of your average modern Greek male : )))))
