Ancient Italic Tribe that lived near Rome
2 members of this tribe eventually became kings of Rome; Numa Pompilius (2nd king) and Ancus Martius (4th king)
Romans got most of their religious rites from the Sabines
Sabine Women
Tricked by Romulus to come early to a "Welcome to Rome" party
Rape (kidnapping) of the Sabine Women occurred around 750 BC
It was how Romulus got wives for the men of Rome
In the ensuing war, the Sabine women are said to have thrown themselves between their old husbands and new - asking to stay with the new so as to avoid any more wars
Tiberinus/Tiber River
Tiberinus was the god of the Tiber River - appointed by Jupiter
He protected the twins (gemini) from drowning
Deposited them at the bottom of the Palatine Hill so the Lupa could find them
Rome was founded on the Tiber River
Called the Tevere River today; possibly named after King Tiberinus of Alba Longa who drowned in it

Lupa is Latin for "wolf"
She found the twin boys after they had been deposited at the bottom of the Palatine hill
Suckled them to help them survive
Ancient symbol for the city of Rome

Faustulus & Acca Larentia
Shepherd who finds the Lupa suckling Romulus & Remus
Raised the twins with his wife, Acca Larentia
Acca Larentia had 12 sons who became the college of Arval Brothers
