Rome exhibition focuses Emperor Trajan's legacyHe has neither the name recognition nor notoriety of a Nero or Caligula, but Emperor Trajan, dubbed the "best among emperors" by contemporaries, is getting his due in Rome in an engaging exhibition examining his exploits – including his expansion of the Roman Empire to its maximum extent across Europe and northern Africa. Timed to mark 1,900 years since the leader's death, the show is a fascinating exploration of the legacy of the "optimus princeps" (the best among emperors).The exhibition shows how Trajan, who ruled from A.D. 98 to A.D. 117, united peoples across Europe and the significance of the women in his life.In a delightful break with so many other exhibitions, this one lets visitors get up close to the statues and other antiquities.
