"The Death of Antinous" by Troy Schooneman. This particular portrait, representing Emperor Hadrian in mourning, is inspired by numerous marble busts of the Emperor and the stories of how he mourned his beloved Antinous following the youth’s unexpected death.
Below is a brief overview on Hadrian and Antinous from the British Museum:
“The Emperor Hadrian married in AD 100, but little is known about the life of his wife and empress, Vibia Sabina. However, ancient sources clearly show that Hadrian formed an intimate relationship with a young Greek male named Antinous. Homosexual relationships were not considered unusual in ancient Rome, but the intensity with which Hadrian mourned Antinous’ premature death was without precedent.
Hadrian visited Egypt in AD 130 along with the imperial entourage, including his wife and Antinous. They embarked on a voyage up the River Nile and on 24 October Antinous drowned in the river, on the same day the locals were commemorating the death, by drowning in the Nile, of the Egyptian god Osiris. Although Hadrian maintained Antinous’ death was an accident, malicious rumours soon spread. Some thought he had committed suicide or that he had been sacrificed. Others claimed Antinous sacrificed himself to prolong the life of the emperor.
Literary sources tell us that Hadrian was profoundly affected by Antinous’ death and mourned him with unusual intensity. While Hadrian did not pass any official decree ordering Antinous’ deification, he gave encouragement to those who wanted to make Antinous the object of a new cult. He also founded a new city on the banks of the Nile, and named it Antinoopolis. There he built a large temple and set up a festival in Antinous’ memory.”
