[Referring to] the statue of the emperor Hadrian.
For Hadrian utterly destroyed the city [i.e. Jerusalem]. For after the desolation that occurred under Vespasian and Titus, the Jews organizing in the reign of Hadrian were eager to revert to their earlier form of government [...]. So, by having begun a revolution, they brought themselves to total desolation [...]. And he gave his own name to the remnants of the city, calling it Aelia; for Hadrian was called Aelius.[1]
