Mythical Roman cave discovered

A path-breaking discovery! Archaeologists believe they've found the sacred cave where, according to legend, a she-wolf suckled Romulus and Remus, the twin founders of Rome.

An underground vaulted cavity decorated with seashells, mosaics and niches was discovered near the ruins of Emperor Augustus' palace on the Palatine hill. It is thought to be the long-lost worship place known as Lupercale. Take a look at the video report from Reuters.
