Face facts: a history of physiognomy from ancient Mesopotamia to the end of the 19th century.
J Biocommun. 1997; 24(3):2-7.JB

Abstract

Inscribed on the face is a code, the translation of which has entertained and eluded humankind for many centuries. The practice of reading the face dates back as early as the paleobabylonian period in Mesopotamia. It wasn't until much later, however, that this ancient tradition was named.
