This is from my book Magical Ancient beads (the Ulrich Beck Collection, 1998)—showing three (3) glass head pendants from the Phoenician era. The central pendant represents a black African. (Possibly a youth.) It is flanked by two (2) similar molded head pendants, with yellow skin, that are beardless, and may be young males or females.

Mistaking a typical Roman Period molded head pendant for a Phoenician pendant is a rather amateur mistake—though clearly there are both negroid and molded constructions that were earlier. JDA.
