Hadrian (Emperor AD 117-138) a cultured and passionate Hellenist journeyed several times through Greece and round the Aegean coast in the years 121-125 and 128-132. Salonica was at the junction of two important Roman roads and Hadrian probably visited the city in 124 AD when he was promoting the semi-autonomous Panhellenion parliament of all the former Greek city states.
