Antinous

Antinous (Ancient Greek: Ἀντίνοος, Antinoös) (27 November, c. 111 – before 30 October 130) was a Bithynian youth and a favourite of the Roman emperor Hadrian. He was deified after his death, although his exact status in the Roman pantheon was uncertain.

Antinoüs, or Antinoös, with a diaeresis, is the hypercorrect spelling of his name.
