O: Tyche, right
R: Female wolf suckling twins Romulus and Remus
Tyche (Roman equivalent: Fortuna) was the presiding tutelary deity who governed the fortune, prosperity and destiny of a city. In classical Greek mythology she is the daughter of Aphrodite and Zeus or Hermes, and at this time served to bring positive messages to people, relating to external events outside their control.
Romulus and Remus are twin brothers whose story tells the events that led to the founding of the city of Rome and the Roman Kingdom by Romulus. The killing of Remus by his twin, along with other tales from their story, have inspired artists throughout the ages. Since ancient times, the image of a she-wolf suckling the twins has been a symbol of the city of Rome and the ancient Romans.
