The Rape of the Sabine Women

The Rape of the Sabine Women
Statues in the Piazza della Signoria in Florence, Italy. The Rape of the Sabine Women and Hercules and the Centaur (background) are 16th Century works by Giambologna.

"The Rape of the Sabine Women is an episode in the legendary history of Rome in which the first generation of Roman men acquired wives for themselves from the neighboring Sabine families. The English word "rape" is a conventional translation of Latin raptio, which in this context means "abduction" rather than its prevalent modern meaning of sexual violation. "
