Dinaricized Forms from Arabia
and Central Asia


FIG. 1 (2 views). A highly Dinaricized Arab from Jidda, the pilgrim port of Mekka. Typical of the sailor population found in maritime settlements on all Arabian coasts.

FIG. 2 (2 views). An example of the same type found along the Yemen coast.

FIG. 3 (2 views). A Dinaricized Hadhramauti; partially blond. The Mediterranean element in the Hadhramaut is often Dinaricized by mixture with the coarse, Veddoid-influenced type seen on Plate 19.

FIG. 4 (2 views). An extreme example of the maritime Arab brachycephal; from Lenja, opposite Muscat, on the Persian side of the Persian Gulf. This type probably originated in the general Persian Gulf neighborhood, but this is by no means certain.

FIG. 5 (2 views). An Iranian-speaking native of Russian Turkestan, showing a Dinaricized form of the usual Irano-Afghan type found in Iranian territory.

FIG. 6 (2 views. It is possible but unlikely that these two views represent two separate individuals). A lowland Tajik from Samarkand, racially a Dinaricized Irano-Afghan. The early oasis population was probably of Mediterranean type, the brachycephalizing agent being Alpine, from the Pamirs.
