The Temple of Hadrian was for the deified emperor Hadrian, who reigned 117-138 CE. He was buried in his new mausoleum, and his temple was close to the Pantheon in the Campus Martius. The massive temple is partially intact today, part of Rome's chamber of commerce. The temple was surrounded by porticoes surmounted by panels depicting military trophies alternating with figures of women that represented the provinces of empire. The panels are located in many museum collections, especially Capitoline Museums, Palazzo Massimo and Museo Nazionale di Napoli.
