Hadrian was adopted by Traian (53 - 117 A.D.); he was born in 76 A.D. and reigned from 117 to 138 A.D.

In his turn Hadrian adopted Antonino Pio, (born in 86 A.D.), who reigned from 138 to 161 A.D.

Antonino adopted Marco Aurelio (borm in 121 A.D.), who reigned from 161 to 180 A.D.
Despite his predecessors Marco Aurelio left the empire to his natural son Commodo who reigned since 180 to 192 A.D.

Commodo died strangled by his fight trainer. The death of Commodo caused the end of the Antonini dynasty, which started with Traian in 98 A.D. and gained to the Roman empire the greatest power.

The following photos depict the gigantic statue of Hadrian recently discovered in Turkey at Sagalassos.
