Details of Wolf and Twins personified

The mythological scene of a she-wolf suckling Romulus (the mythological founder of Rome) and his twin Remus is one of the most famous symbols of Ancient Rome. It first appears on coins during Republican times, but is best known as the reverse type of the massive commemorative coinage struck between AD 330 and 335 during the reign of Constantine the Great.
