suckled by the she-wolf has become emblematic of the city of Rome.

ROMULUS (rŏm′ū·lûs) was the founder of ROME.

RUTULIANS (ro + o ̄·to + o ̄′lĭ·ȧnz) were a people of Italy who fought against AENEAS.

SABINE (sā′bīn) WOMEN were stolen from their families by the Romans in the early days of ROME.

SABINA (sȧ·brīnȧ) is a river Nymph invented by Milton. See NYMPHS, SEA GODS.

SAGITTARIUS (săj′ĭ·tā′rĭ·ûs), the Archer, is a constellation and a sign of the ZODIAC.

SALMACIS (săl′mȧ·sĭs) was the Nymph whose union with Hermaphroditus produced the first hermaphrodite. See HERMES.

SAMOTHRACE (săm′o·thrăs), an island in the northern part of the Aegean Sea, was famous in ancient times for its religious mysteries. The Cabiri, deities whose nature and worship were kept so secret that nothing definite is known of them, were sometimes called Samothracian gods because of the celebration of their mysteries on the island. In the third poem of Hugh Selwyn Mauberley, in which Ezra Pound contrasts the gimcrack present with the beauty of the past, he observes that the Christian mystery is inferior to that of Samothrace. Exploration of the ancient ruins of the island recovered a statue which has become famous as the Victory of Samothrace. It is in the Louvre at Paris.
