The Roman Empire under Emperor Antoninus Pius, the founder of the so-called Antonine dynasty, witnessed its last extended period of peace. Antoninus Pius's body was buried in the Hadrian (the later Castel Sant'Angelo) and a pillar on the Champs de Mars (lost up on the base) was erected in honour of him.
The temple built by Antoninus for Faustina on the Roman Forum became dedicated to his own cult after his death. The Temple of Antoninus Pius and Faustina is one of the best-preserved Roman temples.
Antoninus is traditionally regarded as a ' good emperor ', who was working for peace and justice. His reign was the longest of any Roman Emperor from late Antiquity after that of Augustus, though he was actually only intended to be a transitional Emperor.
The bust of the emperor Antoninus Pius convinces through its quality. The bust is made from fine, hardened porcelain dust.
