      Clues in the legend (or is it fact?) of Romulus
      International Herald Tribune [France], June 13, 2007

      The story of Romulus and Remus is almost as old as Rome. The orphan
      twins were suckled by a she-wolf in a cave on the banks of the Tiber,
      and Romulus grew up to found Rome in 753 B.C. Historians have long since
      dismissed the story as a charming legend. The 19th-century historian
      Theodor Mommsen said: "The founding of the city in the strict sense,
      such as the legend assumes, is of course to be reckoned out of the
      question: Rome was not built in a day." Yet the legend is as
      imperishable as Mommsen's skeptical verdict, and it has been invigorated
      by recent archaeological finds.
