The Ludovisi Antinous is an 18th century reconstruction of an antique bust in Carrara marble. Palazzo Altemps, Museo Nazionale, Rome. 


Today, the modern cult of Antinous celebrates the anniversary of his birth in the city of Claudiopolis, in the Roman province of Pontus Bithynia, most likely in the year 110 CE.
