Tecaxic-Calixtlahuaca Head


The Tecaxic-Calixtlahuaca Head is a terracotta head which was likely part of a larger statue, discovered in 1933 near Mexico City. What makes this discovery so strange is that it was found with Pre-Colombian artifacts, but seems to be of Roman origin. Did the Romans have Pre-Columbian contact with America? Or is there a different explanation to be had?
