Hadrian.jpg (4617 bytes)
P. Aelius Hadrianus
Emperor 117 -138

Hadrian [b. 76], Trajan's ward, followed a military career, married Trajan's grandniece Sabina, and was adopted just before Trajan's death. A conscientious, capable ruler, he realized that Trajan's conquests could not all be held and withdrew to defensible boundaries. He visited the provinces and was a great patron of the arts, but his relations with the Senate were unsatisfactory, and it was with difficulty that his successor arranged Hadrian's deification in 138.

Relatives depicted on coins:
Sabina - wife;  Aelius Caesar - adopted heir; Antinous - favorite.
