And the nose was also damaged coincidentally?

Almost as if small parts or arms that stick out are more prone to be damaged...Really makes you think...

Partly but much is historical vandalism. If the new emperor didn't like the previous emperor, they often had their likenesses smashed.

Completely forgot that the romans would ofen destroy the noses, would make sense if it is actually representing Claudius. But yeah, could be any of them, wear and tear from time/location it was buried or because it was Claudius

That’s usually what happens when you don’t build part of a structure well enough.

Yep just like the others. They "accidentally" were broken or damaged when the Europeans were trying to fill their museums

what are you implying that the nose was damaged? whenever someone says that they usually claim that these people werent our ancestors and we broke it to hide that they were african

As an Irish Mexican descendant, born in California, raised in Texas, I have never heard such a theory. I just thought it seemed odd that most sphinx noses are usually damaged.

When you say "our ancestors", I don't know who you're referring to. I think you might be assuming I know far more about you than is possible from your immediately defensive remark.
