Romae Natalis Beati

Happy 2,776th birthday to the Eternal City of Rome. Rome was founded by twin brothers Romulus and Remus who were conceived by the pagan god Mars who snuck into a virgin's temple both literally and figuratively. The twins were thrown into the Tiber River where they were found and raised by a wolf. There is no way I can compress millennia of Roman history in a single post so enjoy the pictures. Go here for the Daily Mail article for these and more pictures.
