Found in 1971 at the North Monumental Nymphaeum. Roman. Second century AD
Heroic statue of Emperor Hadrian in the nude (see him dressed at the sub-gallery). It was assembled from 9 fragments. Some parts are missing. He wears a paludamentum draped over his shoulder, hanging down his back, the bottom end looped over his left forearm. The statue is similar in style to a fifth century BC statue by Diomedes of a Greek warrior in the Trojan war.
