ON March 1st we commemorate the Death and Apotheosis of Antoninus Pius. 

Also on March 1st, we celebrate the Ascension of his heirs Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus who carried on the "Antonine" Dynasty. 

This was the last golden era of Rome, known as the Age of the Antonines, takes its name from Antoninus, because every emperor afterward took up his name as an emblem of glory. 

Antoninus is the emperor most responsible for the perpetuation of the Religion of Antinous.
