If the OP could post a picture of the entire cylinder head, we could tell.
probably not exactly what you are wanting to see but it's what I had on my phone at the moment. Is there a specific angle or part of the engine you need to see to tell it's origin?

Couldn't hurt to share the engine number, here is a thread on finding it-

Alfa didnt exactly keep a detailed catalog of what specs each engine number held the code too, but it might give us an idea what Alfa model it was originally in. It would specify if its a spider engine or an Alfetta.

This is a picture of my California 1974 spider engine. Back in the '80's I had a 1976 Alfetta GT and the engine you have looks a lot that engine. Notice the casting plugs between the head bolts, my water temp light sensor was screwed in one of those. As a side note, my engine in the Alfetta froze one cold night and the head cracked so bad that it came off in two parts. I replaced it with a spider head after I unscrewed the front plugs and installed the studs you have to support my AC compressor and one of the top plugs to install the temp sensor. So you can make that engine look right.
