City Profile: Rome, Part One -

It being such a big city, we will be covering the city of Roma in Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising™ (G&H) in three installments. This week, we’re focusing on the legendary founders of Roma, its many bustling marketplaces, and the various villages that have cropped up around the gates that allow entrance to the city.

Legends tell of the twins Romulus and Remus, the founders of Roma who were born of Mars, the mighty god of war, and Rhea Silva, a priestess of Vesta and daughter of King Numitor of Alba Longa.
