"The chapels of Antinous and his temples"

During the latter part of Hadrian's reign, the cult of his deified male lover, Antinous, came briefly to rival the cults of Mithras, Isis and Christ for importance within the religious life of the Roman Empire. It is known that chapels or temples dedicated to him existed in his native Bithynia (modern Turkey), at Mantineia in Greece, and in Athens, but none of these survived into the modern era. In 2002 a temple complex of Antinous was discovered on the site of Hadrian's estate at Tivoli, and details of this can be found at: http://www.antinous.wai-lung.com/antinous_en_temple_tivoli.htm.
