Redheaded Roman, Lucius Cornelius Sulla

Emanuela also brought another redhead to my attention. This one being the ancient Roman general and statesman Lucius Cornelius Sulla. According to Wikipedia he had red-blond hair, blue eyes and a dead-white face covered with red marks. The ancient historian Plutarch stated;
"His golden head of hair gave him a singular appearance."
