This shadowy character is nowhere better exemplified than in the recent photographs produced by Robert M. Haralick of Virginia Polytechnic Institute as a result of his computer investigation of the shroud. He is certain that he can see the Pontius Pilate coin in what he has produced, but his published photographs reveal only a fuzzy blur. (See Robert M. Haralick, Analysis of Digital Images of the Shroud of Turin [Virginia Polytechnic Institute: Blacksburg, Virginia, 1983].)
