Beyond Crazy Woman’s Wall
A Modest Proposal in Honor of Hadrian and the Ancient Scots
While I don’t have a favorite American president, I do have a favorite Roman Emperor. It’s Hadrian.
I love him for a lot of reasons, first among them his deep and abiding love for his 19-year-old lover, Antinous. Hadrian was so distraught over his drowning in the Nile that he deified him.
