A study of a 2,000-year-old silver coin found the Egyptian queen, famously portrayed by Elizabeth Taylor, had a pointed chin, thin lips and sharp nose.

 

Her Roman lover, played by Richard Burton, had bulging eyes, thick neck and a hook nose.

 

The tiny coin was studied by experts at Newcastle University.
