Plainly wrong. The Romans were not of Mediterranean, but of Aryan (Indo-European) origin.
Thanks for the strawman
I notice your not much for facts.
Historically, the Romans should have been a mixture of Villanovan Italic northeners with Etruscans and Neolithic and Bronze Age predecessors. 50 The little crania material at hand points entirely in the northern direction, and confirms the relationship between Kelts and Italici, insofar as it may be used. On the other hand, the addition of Etruscan mesocephals with Dinaric and Mediterranean elements would not greatly alter the early Kelt-like Italic metrical form.http://www.snpa.nordish.net/chapter-VI4.htm
The early Romans, judging from the busts of their descendants in the days of Augustus, and of descriptions, were not very tall, as a rule, but were often of heavy body build. Their skulls were flattish on top, and rounded on the sides, like those of the Kelts. The facial features included the well-known "Roman" nose, which may have been partly derived from an Etruscan source. On the whole, the well-known sculptures of Caesar, Augustus, and others, although not reliable from the standpoint of accurate measurement, indicate that a mesocephalic to brachycephalic head form was admired. Their facial type is not native to the Mediterranean basin, but is more at home in the north. Nevertheless, the Romans considered the Kelts who invaded Italy tall and blond; hence the blondism of the Romans, including rufosity, must have been in the minority. 51
More detailed information may be obtained by studying the remains of Romans who died away from home in the colonial service of the empire. For example, an officer of the sixth legion, named Theodorianus, stationed at York, came from the small city of Nomentum, in Latium. Three others, also buried at York, were also native Romans. 52 These four were all of one type, and very much alike: dolicho- to mesocephalic, with low vaults, low, broad foreheads, very aquiline noses, and short, broad, square faces. The skulls of two other pure Roman officers from Bath and Gloucester are the same, as is one from Lincoln. 53
A group of eight male Roman crania from Rheinzabern on the Rhine, 54 belonging to real Romans from Italy, are the same as the individuals from Britain, and almost identical with the eight male males from Rome itself of the Christian period, and the early Roman from Corneto Tarquinia. These scattered references from various quarters, although few, are so alike that we must conclude that the Romans, however mixed, had formed a characteristic local or national physical type, which was mainly of Italic origin, and closely related originally to the Keltic.

This link will lead you to Mediterranean subraces, subsequently the Dinaric, Mediterranean Variants, and Alpinids the Romans were known for. They were originally Mediterranean! But also the Mediterranean race is subject to a characteristic of "Blondism" even from birth, a boy can have Blond Hair and Blue eyes and once he hits childhood everything can darken.
IN BRIEF: The state of having flaxen golden hair and pale skin particularly in a predominantly dark or colored population.http://forum.stirpes.net/physical-anthropology/4351-blondism-italic-peninsula-biasutti.html
You can take a look any Roman bust of Caesar, Augustus and see the have features not like that of your Nordic SS wet dream, but they had bulbous head which is a characteristic of Dinaroid and Alpinid Brachycephalic peoples.
I think you may have read too much Arthur Kemp as a youngster. I suppose since there are Blond Afghans they are Aryan too? Even I have a profile similar to a Augustus or to Maximinus Thrax.
Am I nordic? Not in the least. Roman's had the knowledge to evolve thats what their best characteristic was, after they got their asses handed to them by Hannibal and Pyrrhus of Epirus. Their ideals highly noble, and of course a society Nietzsche could've dreamed of in his day, but in no way are they Aryan.
Also what do you mean not Indo-Europeans? Mediterraneans are Indo-Europeans! The majority of the Third Reich were heavily Mediterranean and wouldn't have looked out of place in Italy, Greece, or even Spain. Your antipathy towards such people is disturbing.
Just to clarify civilization started in Asia and then spread to Europe( India, Sumeria, Egypt, Greece and Rome) in chronological order. Clearly all peoples of Mediterranean( albeit Central Asian as the Caucaus mountains are located there).
