By the Gods!

Alberto Lupo, as Menelaus, and Mark Forest, as Aryan, confer in THE LION OF THEBES (1964)

Lupo often played these roles, sorta cameos, in PEPLUM movies. He was an excellent actor so his contribution was always seen a positive for any production, no matter how short the role was. One has to remember that this movie takes place aster the fall of Troy and here is 
Menelaus from the story of Troy. Depending on which side you're on with the legend of Troy, Menelaus is either evil or good.

See also for comparison the image from the same film later in the blog at:

This here is a much clearer image with rich masculine colours and a closer view of both actors and the tapestry design on the left.
