Antoninus Pius. Roman Emperor from 138 to 161 AD. Marble. Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Number 4 of the Five Good Emperors, he reigned over a time of relative peace, and had the good sense to designate Marcus Aurelius as his heir. (Lucius Verus co-ruled with Marcus for awhile but he basically just threw parties.)
