Hadrian, 11 August 117 - 10 July 138 A.D., Antioch, Syria
|Roman| |Syria|, |Hadrian,| |11| |August| |117| |-| |10| |July| |138| |A.D.,| |Antioch,| |Syria|, In mid-117, Trajan, now a sick man, was slowly returning to Italy when he died in Selinus, Cilicia on 9 August. On his death bed, he made Hadrian his successor but rumor had it that Plotina and Matidia actually selected Hadrian after Trajan was dead. There was, however, no realistic rival to Hadrian. He was linked by blood and marriage to Trajan and commanded Rome's largest military force. Among Hadrian's first acts was to give up all of Trajan's eastern conquests. He then set out from Antioch to view the remains of Trajan, which were being escorted by Attianus, Plotina, and Matidia. He sent them on to Rome by ship and immediately returned to Antioch. He appointed Catilius Severus governor of Syria, and then left for Rome.
