Andrew is Hadrian

It seems that Hadrian protected the Christians and supported the Christian cult.

Aelius Lampridius vita Alex. Severi c. 43:
(Severus) Christo templum facere voluit eumque inter deos recipere, quod et Hadrianus cogitasse fertur, qui templa in omnibus civitatibus sine simulacris iusserat fieri, quae hodieque idcirco, quia non habent numina, dicuntur Hadriani, quae illae ad hoc parasse dicebatur; sed prohibitus est ab iis, qui consulentes sacra repererant omnes Christianos futuros, si id fecisset, et templa reliqua deserenda.

To thank him, "Mark" (aka Marcion) transformed him in the apostle Andrew.


Andrios = Andrianos = Adrianos

Raschke lists the various variants of the name.
