Abstract

Here are the twins Romulus and Remus, the mythical founders of Rome. Abandoned at birth, they were saved and suckled by the she-wolf Lupa and then adopted by a shepherd and his wife. In adulthood while trying to found a new city, the twins argued and Remus was killed. Romulus founded Rome, named it after himself and the rest, as they say, is history.
