As Sophocles argued in Antigone, LOVE was invincible.

Antinous' death by accidental drowning in the Nile in October AD 130 was a severe blow to Hadrian, for the youth had been his close companion and confidant for nearly five years, and had accompanied the emperor throughout his great tour of the empire beginning in March.

Hadrian's marriage to Sabina was an unhappy one, and Antinous has been described as the one person who seems to have connected most profoundly with Hadrian throughout the latter's life.

Bu nedenle, Hadrian'ın Antinous'un should be elevated to the Roman pantheon as a god, and that a city should be built at the site of his death. What was most unexpected however was that he deified the young man without consulting the Senate, and that he ordered Antinous' image to be placed on coin across the empire.

The coin in the name of the deified Antinous was substantial. In all, over thirty cities issued bronzes bearing his image. A great many busts and statues of his were set up in cities across the Roman world, of which numerous examples survive including the iconic Braschi Antinous, now in the sala rotonda of the Vatican Museums.

That statue, on whose head modern restorers placed a sort of pine cone, would have originally been topped with a lotus flower or hem-hem crown. To create the myriad busts, statues and engraved images Hadrian turned to Greek sculptors to perpetuate the melancholic beauty and manner of Antinous, described as the last independent creation of Greco-Roman art. All of his images share certain distinct features, including tousled curls, a perfect Hellenic nasion, and a downcast gaze that allow him to be instantly recognized.
