Il 24 ottobre del 130 d.C. morì tragicamente annegato nelle acque del Nilo Antinoo. Le cause della sua morte non furono mai accertate.
In seguito fu divinizzato dall'imperatore Adriano e, soprattutto in Oriente, si sviluppo un culto in suo onore.

On 24 October 130 A.D. died tragically in the waters of the Nile Antinous. The cause of his death was never established. 
It was later deified by the emperor Hadrian and, especially in the East, is developing a cult in his honor.

 One has to wonder if Antinous went for a midnight swim in the Nile after taking a bit TOO much Falernian wine at an Imperial Banquet, only to discover that Old Sobek didn't much appreciate being disturbed, but DID enjoy an after-dinner treat!

You've solved the cold case! Congratulations :)
In fact, for the Law of Occam's Razor the simplest explanation is sometimes the most plausible!
Bravo!

Grazie Andrea, 
anche io ho letto il libro della Yourcenar. Un libro molto colto, pieno di filosofie e massime sulla vita! Notevole
Un bel ricordo ora che me lo rammenti
