IN celebration of the Birthday of Antinous, I would like to introduce a new Antinous image who has remained unknown for some reason.
I was first introduced to him by Francisco de la Maza In his wonderful book "Antinoo, El Ultimo Dios del Mundo Classico."
And I have been waiting for a special occasion to bring him to the attention of His people.
The name of this image is the "Antinous Dahlem," named for the DAHLEM MUSEUM in Berlin.
He is a small bronze figurine now found in the Berlin Museum.
He is truly one of the most beautiful of all Antinous images in the world.
May the Antinous Dahlem bless us with his presence in our hearts,
May he be reborn this day as we celebrate the birth of our beloved god.
Ave Antinous!~ANTONIUS SUBIA
