"Wisely counselled by Attianus"

Publius Acilius Attianus was, like Hadrian, born in Italica. When Hadrian's father died, Attianus, along with Trajan, became the young boy's guardian. Attianus was also present, in 117 AD, at Trajan's death-bed, and helped the Empress Plotina to secure Hadrian's succession, either by persuading Trajan or, as some have suggested, by forging his will. Hadrian later turned against him, forcing him to step down from his role as Praetorian Prefect.
