God(s) of the Week: Romulus and Remus

Statue of twin brothers Romulus and Remus being raised by their she-wolf mother. They are the central characters in Rome's foundation myth.

The Capitoline Wolf is a bronze sculpture of a she-wolf suckling twin infants, inspired by the legend of the founding of Rome. According to the legend, when Numitor, grandfather of the twins Romulus and Remus, was overthrown by his brother Amulius, the usurper ordered the twins to be cast into the Tiber River. They were rescued by a she-wolf who cared for them until a herdsman, Faustulus, found and raised them

Romulus and Remus, Rome founders, nursed by the she-wolf (it's since been determined that while the wolf is an ancient bronze figure, the children are a much later addition, possibly replacing figures that had been lost).
