Antinous as Dionysus or the Ghost of Christmas Present?

Antinous, beloved of Hadrian, cherished by me, festooned as Dionysus or the Ghost of Christmas Present?

Antinous, beloved of Hadrian, cherished by me, festooned as Dionysus – or the Ghost of Christmas Present?

Inspired by my recent real life odyssey to the ancient Roman world:
Ephesus (Turkey),
Herculaneum,
Pompeii,
Oplanti,
the Villas of Stabia,
Tiberius’s Villa in Capri,
Hadrian’s Tivoli Compound,
and glorious Ostia Antica,
my dear Antinous is festooned this Christmas in ivy and gold.

Is he Dionysus? Or the Ghost of Christmas Present from my all-time favorite classic film, A Christmas Carol?

Either way, he is still history’s most beautiful man. At least, he gets my vote.
