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.
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.
