The man was wearing a yellow metal signet ring on his wedding finger.
He may previously have lived in the Greater Manchester area.
Det Insp Steve Monk, of South CID, said: “Despite our best efforts to try and find out who this man is we still have no identity for him, and I would appeal to anyone who may have known him, or who recognises the tattoos or the signet ring in the images to get in touch.”
