Head of Trajan

Trajan (born 53, ruled 98-117 CE) expanded the empire to its greatest extent, bringing in Arabia and provinces to the east (which were eventually abandoned by Hadrian). In Rome, he is known for his extensive basilica and markets near which is his column celebrating his conquest of Dacia (modern Romania) and in the base of which his ashes were eventually interred.
