Man Foulards in Roman Carthage

Just above the artist quarter in Punic Carthage, which was destroyed by the Romans, I came across an impressive marble bust in one of the Roman villas.

This Roman guy’s sense of style was definitely cool!

His entire torso is nude, as he sports a large foulard draped around his shoulders, hangin infront and descending slightly more in the back.

Lately on the runways of fashion weeks around the world, there is much draping as layer is added upon layer, a trend that was very common among the Romans.

For more reading on Roman dress, go to Roman Blockbusters, Byzantium & Barbarians.

The additional photos that follow the bust were taken at the thermal bathes just below the Roman Villas.

Stroll through the ancient Roman bathes.
