Giant statue of Hadrian unearthed – Book Recommendation

Giant statue of Hadrian unearthed

“Parts of a huge, exquisitely carved statue of the Roman Emperor Hadrian have been found at an archaeological site in south-central Turkey.The original statue would have stood 4m-5m in height, experts estimate.

His achievements include the massive wall built across the width of northern Britain which bears his name.”

A reminder, one of my favorite novels, historical or otherwise, is Marguerite Yourcenar’s  Memoirs of Hadrian. Published in France in 1951, it is a favorite recommended to me by a college girlfriend. Yourcenar’s The Abyss is another great find.
