This book presents the proceedings of the 2009 conference relating to the 2008 exhibition at the British Museum entitled "Hadrian: Empire and Conflict" and complements and expands upon the exhibition catalogue. It covers such subjects as architecture, sculpture, archaeology, economics, numismatics and philhellenism and ranges over the Roman Empire from Britain and Spain in the West to Turkey and Georgia in the East. The original contributions by international scholars present the latest state of research and the first publication of some new material. Thorsten Opper is a curator of Greek and Roman sculpture at the British Museum. He organised the internationally acclaimed 2008 exhibition "Hadrian: Empire and Conflict" and authored the accompanying catalogue (British Museum Press 2008). He currently directs a fieldwork project at Hadrian's Villa, near Rome.
