Antonin was born in 86. He had been very sick and almost died 144. From 160, the emperor is continuously bedridden. At the beginning of the year 161, Antonin no longer rises and died 7 March 161. He was immediately deified by Marcus Aurelius and buried in the Mausoleum of Hadrian, the current Castel Sant'Angelo.
