Hadrian (Latin: Caesar Publius Aelius Traianus Hadrianus Augustus; 24 January 76 – 10 July 138), born Publius Aelius Hadrianus, was Roman Emperor from 117 to his death.

Some years after the Temple of Zeus in Cyrene was destroyed during the Jewish rebellion in 115, Hadrian had it reconstructed, but chose not to rebuild the outer portico and instead had the columns restored in Corinthian marble. Unfortunately, Hadrian did not see the restoration to its completion, dying on 10 July 138.[1]

He later commissioned the building of Hadrian's Wall in an attempt to keep the Roman province of Britannia secure from the Ancient Britons and Picts to the north.[2]

Following his death, he was buried in a mausoleum deliberately designed to be larger than the Mausoleum of Augustus. When Alaric I and the Visigoths sacked Rome in 410, Hadrian's ashes were scattered.[3]
