Today is the day that Antinous died,
Whenever this day returns it is always an occasion for sorrow,
just to consider what might have happened,
how his life was cut short,
how he might have gone on to live a long full existence,
He would have lived a normal life died a normal death and been forgotten.
But instead he was deified and lives forever and
we are all in love with him 2000 years later.
This is what Hadrian wanted,
For all of us to share his love for Antinous.
