Portrait of Empress Sabina (wife of Hadrian), ca. 130 AD, Altes Museum (Berlin)

Vibia Sabina (83-136 A.D.), a relative of Trajan, was married very young to the future emperor, Hadrian.  The comparison with coins, physiognomy, hairstyle and diadem allows for the portrait's identification as the Empress Sabina.
