Roman Commemorative (She Wolf) Constantinian Mint State
Rome, it was said, was founded by the twins Romulus and Remus. Of course, this was a myth; the city’s “foundation myth.” In this account, Romulus and Remus were the children of the god Mars and a vestal, Rhea Silvia, a descendant of Aeneas.
As babies, they were exposed in the wild, and were suckled by a wolf. Later, when they decided to found a city, they argued about which hill was better, and in the quarrel, Remus was killed.
This bronze coin is original and dates back nearly 1700 years–it’s a commemorative coin to celebrate the foundation of Rome. It has been preserved in mint condition and clearly depicts two babies underneath a mother wolf.
