Roman Mythology

Why use the "Wolf" for a logo?

The Reason The Roma's Logo is a Wolf

One of the earliest and best known legends involving wolves is the story of Romulus and Remus, twin sons of a Vestal Virgin who were banished to the wilderness and, before their rescue, were raised by wolves. The most popular version was written in A.D. 70 by Plutarch. The story however, originated around the fourth century B.C. and details how the twins went on to become the legendary founders of ancient Rome. The photo above, from The Wolf Almanac by Robert H. Busch, is of a statue at Musei Capitolini in Rome, Italy. It depicts Romulus and Remus being suckled by a she-wolf.
