Sikeliot's Sicilian truth bombs' up in this motherfucker. 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽

1) Northeast Sicily: Messina, Catania

Key phenotypes: Alpine, Gracile Med, East Med, Dinarid, Atlantid, Pontid, Nordid, Armenoid, and their derivatives and any combination thereof.
Closest genetic populations: Calabria/Campania, Crete, Aegean Islands, Cypriots, Southern Greeks, Ashkenazi/Sephardi Jews, Central Italians, Turks, Syrians/Lebanese.
Genetic distinctiveness: High affinity to the Caucasus, low North European input.
Phenotypical trend: Strongly gracile features, gravitating toward Cyprus.
_____________


2) Southeast Sicily: Enna, Ragusa, Syracuse

Key phenotypes: Dinarid, Alpine, Gracile Med, East Med, Atlantid, Pontid, Nordid, and their derivatives and any combination thereof.
Closest genetic populations: Southeast Italy (Apulia/Lucania), Greeks overall, Central Italians, Ashkenazi/Sephardi Jews, Albanians, Bulgarians, Macedonians.
Genetic distinctiveness: Higher Northeast European ("Balto-Slavic") and lowest North African and SW Asian on the island.
Phenotypical trend: Robust build breaking from the typically gracile orientation of the island, resembling Greeks from both mainland and islands as well as Balkanites overall.

_____________

3) West-Central Sicily: Palermo, Agrigento, Caltanissetta

Key phenotypes: Gracile Med, East Med, Dinarid, Armenoid, Atlantid, Nordid, Berid, South Med, and any combination thereof.
Closest genetic populations: Ashkenazi/Sephardi Jews, North African Jews, Cretans, Aegean islands, Central Italians, Southern Greeks, Cypriots, Syrians/Lebanese.
Genetic distinctiveness: Higher North African and Southwest Asian influence, minor Norman input in Palermo, and shift toward Moroccan Jews.
Phenotypical trend: Due to higher Afro-Asiatic input especially in Agrigento, the population phenotypically resembles many Jewish groups and to an extent, Levantines.

4) Trapani

Key phenotypes: Gracile Med, East Med, Berid, Nordid, Dinarid, Atlantid, Armenoid, Subnordid, South Med, and any combination thereof.
Closest genetic populations: Central and southern Italians overall, Ashkenazi/Sephardi Jews, North African Jews, Greeks overall, North Italians, Iberians, Syrians/Lebanese.
Genetic distinctiveness: Lower genetic influence from the Caucasus than the rest of the island, higher Southwest Asian and North African, and higher North European than the rest of western Sicily from Normans.
Phenotypical trend: The region lacks the same degree of implicit Caucasian influence than the rest of the island and bears stronger influences from both Western Europe and North Africa than what is typical, with many individuals also resembling Jews and Levantines.
