    Exhibition - Antinous: The Emperor's Beloved

    Antinous: The Emperor's Beloved focuses on the beautiful youth, beloved of the Roman Emperor Hadrian, and the unexpected discovery in 2011 of traces of gilding on his marble portrait in the Museum's collection. The exhibition explores our behind-the-scenes research and the story of Antinous.
