London, Oct 16 (ANI): A Roman marble head that looks like King of Rock n Roll Elvis Presley sold for a whopping 24,000 pounds at auction on October 15.

The 13-inches marble figure had come from a 2nd century AD sarcophagus.

The head was later bought by an unnamed collector at a Bonhams sale in London.

It bears an uncanny likeness to Elvis. Its the quiff that does it. It wasnt a hairstyle of the day as far as I know, the Daily Express quoted Antiquities specialist Georgiana Aitken as saying. (ANI)
