The statue of Antinous is the one I like the most in the museum. Maybe due to of the beauty of the boy's face or due to the mystery surrounding his death.
Antinous was a friend and a lover of the emperor Hadrian. It is said that from the age of 12 Antinous was part of the emperor's household. He used to travel along with Hadrian and during their stay in Egypt he fell into Nile and died. Hadrian commissioned statues of Antinous to be erected all round the Roman Empire, which explains why we find in Delphi this statue, dating back to the 2nd century AD.
