cleopatra - the great beauty

Pretty much everyone knows the story of Cleopatra (Elizabeth Taylor), Julius Caesar and Mark Antony (Richard Burton), and think that Cleopatra was a great beauty.
She may well have been as portrayed by Taylor, but not in reality, if these likenesses are anything to go by (a bust and a coin with Cleopatra's image).
I'd rather look at the bust, and saying that, preferably Taylor's.
