The excerpt of Cassius Dio which describes the arrival of two embassies to Hadrian has been traditionally associated with the final years of this Emperor's reign. This paper questions this assumption on the basis of circumstantial evidence concerning Hadrian's relations with the Senate, Cassius Dio's writing method, the known evidence related to the con flict with the Iazyges and the duration of the Ibero-Albanian con flict, and argues instead that the middle years of Hadrian's reign (125–127 CE) would provide much more suitable occasion for the arrival of the embassies.
