The legend as a whole encapsulates Rome's ideas of itself, its origins and moral values. For modern scholarship, it remains one of the most complex and problematic of all foundation myths, particularly Remus's death. Ancient historians had no doubt that Romulus gave his name to the city.
Most modern historians believe his name a back-formation from the name Rome; the basis for Remus's name and role remain subjects of ancient and modern speculation.

Romulus Makers Of History by Abbott, Jacob
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase. Item description indicates this version "may not" include all the images from the original. I find this misleading to say the least. The content of the text is good though difficult to read- it's as if someone typed it on their grandfather's old ribbon-ink typewriter that needed a new ribbon.
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. A very intelligent look into ancient history based on fact and fable, but quite enlightening. A very good story giving an insight into how Rome was built and extened.
