- Brief anthropological analysis :
- Type 1 : Dark complexion (black eyes though light eyes are not uncommon, black hair, tanned skin, ...), leptomorphic, arched convex nose (droopy tip), close-set eyes, full lips, deeply drawn lines around the oral cavity
~ Dinaromorphic Mediterranean
This phenotype is what might be dubbed "Arabid" by most authors : it's very common in Eastern North Africa and is generally associated with Semitic people. Some male individuals show rather puffy features (full lips, broad nose, broad chin, ...) not uncommon in the Eastern Mediterranean.
- Type 2 : Dark complexion (black eyes, black hair, ...), brachymorphic, coarse features, large face, massive and low-rooted nose that can get convex, full lips, somehow wide-set eyes
This is a classical type from the Levant : the lack of Berberid features - so common in the Maghreb - is to be noticed. It confirms modern genetic studies that Egyptians are more closely related to Middle-Easterners than to Maghreb people.
