Romulus and Remus by Peter Paul Rubens, 1616
The Capitoline Wolf. A combination of a 5th century BC bronze wolf with 15th century Rumulus and Remus.

Romulus and Remus are mythological twins who were abandoned by a river because they posed a threat to the ruling king. Their mother was a vestal virgin and their father was the god, Mars. The twins were discovered by a she wolf and she accepted them as hers. She fed them and took care of them till they were discovered by a shepherd. Long story short, they grew up to be charismatic men. They had a dispute that resulted in Romulus killing his brother. He then went on to establish the city of Rome. The rest is history.
