  1. It’s interesting, don’t you think…that while most writers on Roman history are male, those on Hadrian have a fair number of women writers (Speller, Yourcenar, you). It would be fascinating to know the reason why. Do you think Antinous and his relationship with Hadrian plays a role? Perhaps Hadrian’s relationship with Sabina?
