Antoninus Pius

Roman Emperor (138-161 CE)

Historical Persons / Romans

Titus Aurelius Fulvus Boionius Arrius Antoninus (86-161 CE) became emperor in 138 CE at the death of his adoptive father Hadrian.

At Hadrian’s request he had adopted Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus as his successors before death of Hadrian in 138. Both would later succeed him as desired by Hadrian.

Antoninus Pius generally followed a conservative line. He avoided unnecessary military adventures and he took great care to leave a healthy economy to his successors. His building activities were mostly limited to finishing the projects left by Hadrian.

Antoninus’ wife Faustina died a few years after his rise to power, and she was deified by the senate and a temple build in her honour on the Forum Romanum. This temple was reconsecrated to them both after the death and deification of Antoninus.
