The Emperor Hadrian

Ca. 134. White marble Room 074

The image of Publius Aelius Hadrian (76-138 A. D.) did not change much during his rule (117-138 A. D.). This effigy shows him in his maturity, and can thus be dated between 130 and 138 A.D. Despite a degree of realism in his features, the emperor´s interest in idealization is visible here in the curly hair and short beard, which allude to his philosophical bent and his passion for Classical Greece.
