2nd century AD

The term imperator strictly speaking only befitted a victorious Roman commander. Republican commanders such as Julius Caesar were hailed imperator by their troops after victories. However, it was a title which the emperors chose for themselves as commander in chief of the Roman imperial army.
In this case, you see a suggested recreation of emperor Hadrian's appearance.
