The Colossal Statue of the Emperor Hadrian Discovered

The statute of the father of Roman fortifications (ref.: Hadrian's Wall in northern Britain ([rom.] Valul lui Adrian)), emperor Hadrian (ref.: he ruled between A.D. 117-138), has been discovered last month in southern Turkey, at the site of the ancient town of Sagalassos. The colossal statue would have stood 4-5 meters in height, as estimated by the site archaeologists.
