Antinous: Boy Made God

Tuesday, September 25, 2018 - 10:00 to Sunday, February 24, 2019 - 17:00

FREE EXHIBITION
25 September – 24 February

Antinous was a boy-favourite of the Emperor Hadrian. He drowned in the Nile in A.D. 130, and the emperor founded a city in middle Egypt in his honour called Antinoopolis or ‘Antinous City’. A striking portrait of the boy was created by a great court sculptor, and this image was widely reproduced around the empire. More than eighty busts and statues survive. This exhibition explores the spread of Antinous’ image and his empire-wide cult as a hero and god.
