Am I finally at the legendary “pinned introductory post” level of fame? Should I introduce myself? I feel as though I just inherited an army and I do not know what to do with such power.
There are almost 30,000 of us here now…. how the hell did that happen?

The way people will see a drawing or sculpture or read a text about Hadrian and say “Ohh that was Antinous’ lover” as apposed to “that was the fucking emperor of Rome for twenty years” proves that power is temporary but good looks are forever.

On July 10th of 138AD Emperor Publius Aelius Hadrianus passed away in his villa in Baiae (what is today known as the gulf of Naples) after a twenty-one year rule. He was buried, first, in Pozzuoli (the metropolitan city of Naples) on an estate owned by Cicero - a roman statesman, scholar, philosopher, lawyer, and academic skepticist - but, upon completion of The Tomb of Hadrian (also known as Mausoleum of Hadrian or Castel Sant’Angelo) in 139AD, his body was cremated and placed in the mausoleum beside his wife, Vibia Sabina, and his adopted son, Lucius Aelius Caesar, who also passed in 138AD.
