Clues in the Legend (or is it Fact?) of Romulus
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.
