Antinous en bon Genie

Antinous was the lover of Roman Emperor Hadrian. The well proportiend, good looking youth drowned in the river Nile, only 19 years of age. His death still puzzles: Was it an accident, suicide, murder? Grieving Hadrian proclaimed Antinous a God. Busts of the beautiful youth were erected, coins were struck, gems were with his image. Antinous was also depicted as Roman Bacchus, as god of fertility with grapes. Here Antinous is holding a cornucopia with grapes.
