ABSTRACT
This article presents a biography of second-century Roman emperor and poet Hadrian. Only a few extant works from the poet remain. While his poetic achievement was secondary to his successes as emperor and promoter of Pax Romana, or the Peace of Rome, it still testifies his Hellenistic erudition and interest in cultural matters. This article presents a biography of the poet, a discussion of his remaining works, and resources for further study.
