Fine Art Friday: Antinous

Antinous as Osiris, Holding the Wands of Horus. Antinous the Bithynian was the young lover of the legendary Roman emperor Hadrian. He fell into the Nile and drowned and was made a beloved god throughout the Empire. The Egyptians identified him with Osiris, who also met his end in the Eternal River.

So given all that, we shall adopt Antinous as our patron deity for the final installment of the Siren series, which will be entitled The Siren: Hardcore Synchromysticism.

Watch this space!
