Adriano was one of the most powerful and most respected rulers in history. Known as one of the "five good emperors", he ruled in an era considered by chroniclers to be the happiest of the ancient period. For 21 years, starting from 117 AD, Hadrian dominated an empire that spanned three continents. Great emperor, he put an end to the expansionist policy of his predecessors by consolidating the provinces and ruling in the name of peace and prosperity. Adriano invested in infrastructure and the arts in every corner of the empire, leaving behind him an immense patrimony: he was responsible for the construction of new palaces and complete restorations in Rome, Athens and many other cities of the empire. The body, made of opaque Egyptian basalt, features a skilfully hand-sculpted peacock. It is thought that these beautiful birds, a symbol of immortality, were once part of the original decorations of Hadrian's mausoleum. The sinuous and circular decoration of the cone and the cap ring of this edition represents Janus, the Roman god of the beginning and the end, while the shape of the upper part of the cap and the cone, in solid Au 750 white gold, with his gradations reminiscent of the dome of the Pantheon in Rome. In place of the oculus of the dome, the Montblanc emblem in mother-of-pearl decorates the center of the top of the cap. In homage to the Eleusinian mysteries, the clip is expertly worked in the shape of an ear of ripe wheat, the main attribute of the goddess Demeter. In addition, the hand-crafted Au 750 gold nib is decorated with the skilful engraving of Hadrian's phoenix, with a halo and bay leaf.
