Silver Romulus and Remus coin with a portrait of Vespasian in profile. Romulus and Remus being nursed by a she-wolf on the reverse. Amulius, fearing that Romulus and Remus would grow up to overthrow him, had them placed in a trough and thrown into the River Tiber where they were later found by a she-wolf who, instead of killing them, looked after them and fed them with her milk.
