Historical background


(+10 / 07/138) Publius Ælius Hadrianus

Posthumous hits

Events rushed in 138. After the death of Sabine previous year, it was the turn of Aelius, the adoptive son of Hadrian died earlier this year (January 1). The Emperor is ill and misanthrope. It eliminates his brother and his nephew and purge the Senate before adopting Antonin 10 February 138. When he died 10 July 138, resentful senators initially refuse the deification of their enemy. It took all the pugnacity of Antoninus for the divine homage to his adoptive father whose ashes are deposited in the cenotaph, now the Castel Sant'Angelo. Antonin, meanwhile, will be awarded the title of "Pius" for his willpower and Piety.
