Now we have emotes for various animated gestures, waving and the like; however, there still remains an entire area of non-animated emotes or poses rather.

Theres the so-called Greco-Roman salute to cite one example: Although, theres no historical evidence to support the Romans or Greeks using any such salute. Most depictions of Romans or Greeks saluting in this manner date centuries after their respective empires fell. Earliest known depiction is this painting in 1784 AD. From there later works and popular culture attributed it to the Greeks and then Romans. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/bb/David-Oath_of_the_Horatii-1784.jpg/350px-David-Oath_of_the_Horatii-1784.jpg Of course there's the modern version:
