Man From The Ancient Necropolis # 1 (illustrated by Lars Brown)

This is one of the men from the ancient Necropolis.

Scroyle tells the others gathered for the air burial at Mount Calamon about his conversation with a traveler regarding the origins of the Necropolis Litharge.

As told by Scroyle, when a group of strangers entered the Necropolis, which is no longer named, and asked for the cerements and for the book of rituals used for their funeral rites, the Necropolitans laughed and called them mad. According to the storyteller, who happened to be Destruction, the hearts of the ancient Necropolitans were hard and did not care for their duties.

This is the reason the ancient Necropolis was destroyed and Litharge became the new Necropolis.

This man appears in Sandman # 55, on page 16, in panel 2. He is on the far left. I really like this portrait from Lars. He added a nice touch to this character with the skull insignia on his vest.
