Random Question

Does Pau Gasol look more like Titus Quinctius Flamininus or Mithradates VI?

[Updated to fix image link]

Pau Gasol

Mithradates, I'd say.

I vote Mithridates. Flamininus' nose isn't pointy enough.

Whoops! I mean his nose is TOO pointy.

So you're going to exploit the readers of to crowdsource the analysis of coins?

Sean: That's a good idea!

I do think you have to say Mithradates. The beard brought Flamininus to mind. Of course, we're only a few steps from Alexander but Pau is no longer behaving like a great conqueror.

Definitely Mithridates, no contest!
