Rome: Capitoline She-Wolf Statue Dated to 13C

Jump to last reply

It *was* considered one of the most famous pieces in the Capitoline Museums (and my personal favorite:( ).

 So it's not a ~5C/6C-BC bronze statue but a ~1200AD statue:(.

 There were always some questions and in '06 the casting technique was doubted publicly but now hi-tech tests seem to show it's a Medieval statue.

This is from Nov'06, where I mentioned what was believed then by some to be lightning damage on the statue which placed it on the Capitoline Hill in 65BC.
