The Emperor Antoninus Pius

Ca. 140. White marble.
Room 071

Titus Aurelius Boionius Arrius Antoninus (86-161 A. D.) was adopted in 138 A. D. by the moribund emperor Hadrian to be his successor. His portrait, dating from shortly after, did not change during the whole of his reign. The effigy prolongs the style of Hadrian’s portraits, intending to emphasize the loyalty of Antoninus Pius to the pacifist policy of his predecessor.
