    I wonder if there are more sculptures of Apollo like this. I searched on the net for some similar but could not find any.

    That is the same thing I was thinking. It is clear that this sculpture of Apollo was that of a Man from Alkebulan...

    After careful thought, I realized that there are probably more sculptures of Greek and Roman Gods in with the faces of people who are Black.

    The concept of God and Goddess has no racial or ethnical identiy, you can make your higher powers whomever you want them too be. And it seems that the people of Verii envisioned Apollo as a Black Male, which probably means they depicted the entire Greek Parthenon as Black.
