From an original preserved in Rome, and said to be the finest of all the numerous effigies of Hadrian's devoted friend by that name, who was a model of youthful beauty, and achieved immortality by sacrificing his life to save his imperial master from drowning in the Nile. Hadrian apotheosized him, and the artists of the time treated him as a new type of manly beauty--another Apollo. [P. 11; exhibited under heading: "Catalogue of Casts."]
