  1. Dear Carole, the location of San Fruttuoso, near Genova, Italy, is incorrect: the Marble head inside the wall belongs to Antoninus Pius not Hadrian. Perhaps you may find most portraits of the Emperor around Genova, over the monumental portals of aristochratic mansions and in the Museum of S.Agostino.

    I wish there was a source for a good plaster casts or reproduction of one of Hadrian’s busts. I have never seen one.

    Hey Carol, do you know which one of these is the earliest? I can see a lot of difference in age and weight in how Hadrian is portrayed.
