This is one of several contributory articles to the volume: 'Nicholas Lanier, 1588?1666. A Portrait Revealed'. It examines the statuette of Antinous which is shown within portrait, arguing that is more than a decorative feature, rather, that it carried much of the portrait's meaning. It is speculated that for early Jacobean viewers Antinous brought to mind the character of that name in Homer's Odyssey (and in derivative works) and not the Emperor Hadrian's Antinous.
