Death



Hadrian died in 138 on the tenth day of July, in his villa at Baiae at age 62.

However, the man who had spent so much of his life traveling had not yet reached his journey's end.

He was buried first at Puteoli, near Baiae, on an estate which had once belonged to Cicero. Soon
after, his remains were transferred to Rome and buried in the Gardens of Domitia, close by the almost-complete mausoleum.

Upon the completion of the Tomb of Hadrian in Rome in 139 by his successor Antoninus Pius, his body was cremated, and his ashes were placed there together with those of his wife Vibia Sabina and his first adopted son, Lucius Aelius, who also died in 138. Antoninus also had him deified in 139 and given a temple on the Campus Martius.
