Antinous, the beautiful youth beloved by the Roman emperor Hadrian, was memorialized after his death by scores of sculpted portraits. Many of these are among some of the most exquisite images to survive from antiquity and have been admired since the Renaissance; yet centuries later they and their subject remain enigmatic. Dr. Elizabeth Bartman’s lecture will consider some new finds at Hadrian's Villa in Tivoli as well as several little known museum portraits in the hope of shedding new light on this shadowy figure.

Free. Seating is limited and first come, first served. Doors to the auditorium will open at 6:00 p.m. Please arrive early.

This lecture is in partnership with the Southwest Texas Archaeological Society.
