The catalogue provides an account of an exhibition which sought for the first time to bring together coherently at Hadrian’s Villa, in the magical space of the Antiquarium of
Canopus, completely restored for the occasion and reopened to the public for the first time, all the principal surviving public images of Vibia Sabina related to the political program adopted by Hadrian (117-138 A.D.): splendid statues and portraits exceptionally on loan from museums around the world, epigraphs and coins, subject to interesting new interpretations, as shown by the numerous texts and catalogue entries contributed by highly authoritative scholars. The time span covered runs from Hadrian’s rise to power until the death and deification of Sabina, the period from which dates the veiled statue in Boston, the masterpiece on display recently returned to the Italian state by the Boston Museum of Fine Arts
