Hadrian Caesar’s Breakfast Nook

England’s Daily Mail paraphrased an article in The Times about discoveries within the remains of the royal complex of the Roman Emperor Hadrian. I’m including the Daily Mail link coz The Times is behind a paywall. The article begins:

“The room in which the Roman emperor Hadrian and his reportedly long-suffering wife Vibia Sabina likely held elaborate power breakfasts some 1,900 years ago has been discovered.

“Archaeologists identified the setting within the Villa Adriana, a sprawling 200-acre complex at Tivoli that was initially built for the emperor as a retreat from the hustle and bustle of Rome in around 120 AD.

“By the year 128 AD, however, Hadrian began governing the empire directly from the villa, which would have played host to a large court and numerous visiting guests and bureaucrats.”
