Ethiopid race

Somali man of Eastern Hamitic type (sculpture of The Races of Mankind series, 1929).

Ethiopid (also spelled Aethiopid, also called Erythriote) is a historical racial classification of humans. By some, it was called Eastern Hamitic.[1][2]

Ethiopids were typically classified as a Caucasoid (Europid) subrace.[3] According to John Baker (1974), in their stable form, their center of distribution was considered to be Horn of Africa, among that region's Hamito-Semitic-speaking populations.[1]

Baker described them as being of medium height, with a dolicocephalic or mesocephalic skull (see cephalic index), an essentially Caucasoid facial form, an orthognathic profile (no prognathism) and a rather prominent, narrow nose, often ringlety hair, and an invariably brown skin, with either a reddish or blackish tinge.[1]
