Melonheads in general are described primarily by the following traits:
1. Elongated skull, and particularly specialized overdevelopment of the parietal bone
2. Shallow eye sockets
3. Generally aerodynamic facial shape (with retreating periorbital sockets)
Arch melons can be distinguished from their outbred descendants by the following traits:
1. Elongated midface, angled such that the eyes and upper face are set behind the nasion and chin
2. Long Greek nose (or Greek-like nose if you prefer)
3. Lack of chin recession
4. Large, expressive eyes
5. Overall extremely smooth, progressive facial appearance (high, forward-set, prominent cheekbones, etc.)
As Heaviside once remarked, the melonhead profile looks as if it was designed for looking down one’s nose at shorter people.
Goethe is a great example of an arch melon.
Note that all distinguishing arch melon traits are displayed. The midface is elongated and angled so that his eyes are behind his teeth. The nose is long and straight. The chin is not recessed, so that the line from chin to nasion is straight up and down. The eyes are large and expressive. The face is very smooth and progressive-looking, and there are no visible defects accumulated from mutations.
This bust of an Egyptian noblewoman is a great example as well.
Juan Carlos provides another decent modern example.
In comparison with these relatively pure expressions of the melonhead type, most people who we would type as “melonhead” lack some trait or another from the arch melon suite. For example,
We would type this person as a melonhead. This image has the elongated midface but also has a very recessed chin, which gives the sharper facial angle that typifies an entrenched aristocratic caste (H/T Paul Fussell’s book Class, which I’ll reference once I’ve got a copy). As you can probably see, this person shows negroid influence which suggests outbreeding. This is a typical reaction of a stagnating elite class to diminishing numbers. The alternative, apparently, is to look like a bunch of degenerate inbred freaks like the Rothschilds.

The most unbelievable thing I’ve ever seen on this blog.
Oh dear, we might have to hash out the details then.
Micael Tsarion has some interesting things to say about Akhenaton.
Can haz link? I don’t wanna trawl.
Does Melonhead necessarily correlate with Dinaric https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinaric_race ?
Almost certainly. They both have a lot of Caucasus and Middle Eastern genetic history.
Melons gonna Melon
Do Trump’s phrenology
I’ll see if I can throw something together. It would be useful.
The arch-melon nose is somewhat similar to the neanderthal nose in shape, but without the any of the width and less projection.
Your majesty raises a good point. This is related to my speculation on where melonheads come from, but it requires more slow-boiling before I’m ready to present it.
Memoire made a convincing case that the neanderthal nose would also be upturned, like Weev’s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycWoqDI3WeI
Weev is a good example of the mousterian type.
