Antinous was a handsome youth, a Greek from Bythinia. The favourite of the Roman Emperor Hadrian (117-138), he was tragically drowned in the Nile during a drip to Egypt with the Emperor in 130. According to one version, he died saving the Emperor's life. After the death of Antinous, Hadrian ordered that he be deified. His statues, as the gods Dionysius or Hermes, adorned Hadrian's villa at Tivoli just outside Rome.
