In Roman mythology , the wolf played a role in the founding of Rome by suckling the twins Romulus and Remus.
Sull'origine della formula in bocca al lupo | Accademia della Crusca
According to Terry Jones , "The Romans did not see [the tale of Romulus, Remus and the she-wolf] as a charming story; they meant to show that they had imbibed wolfish appetites and ferocity with their mother's milk". The Sabines had two words for wolf: hirpus used in religious contexts and lupus , the latter of which was incorporated into Latin. Although the Romans did not worship wolves, killing them was likely considered taboo ; unlike the Etruscans , the Romans very rarely sacrificed wolves in rituals, and no records have been found of wolves being used in the amphitheatres , despite being more numerous and easily accessible compared to other, more exotic animals used.
The use of wolves in Roman folk medicine , while attested by Pliny the Elder , was minimal compared to other animals such as snakes or bears and, contrary to popular imagery, Roman standard bearers did not wear wolf skins, with the only units attested to have worn them being the velites , who were mostly poor Germanic subjects with no compunction over using wolf skins. Wolves entering cities or temples were usually only killed when the animal had no means of escape, unlike the case with wasps, oxen, and owls, which were quickly eliminated if they entered sacred areas.
The wolf also featured prominently in Italian folk medicine. Baby colic was treated by tying a sack filled with a piece of wolf gut around the child's neck, while miscarriages were prevented by tying a wolf's intestine around the mother's abdomen. Rheumatism and tonsillitis were treated with wolf fat, while a tooth or tuft of fur was worn as a talisman against the evil eye.
The 19th-century records show that from —, attacks occurred, 77 of which resulted in death. Of these cases, only five were attributed to rabid animals. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
