Not only did the she-wolf fail to eat the babies, she took them back to the cave and carefully fed them milk. Later, the shepherds found these babies and took them home, and named them Romulus and Lemos. When Romulo and Lemos grew up, they practiced martial arts, killed Amurius, and returned the throne to Grandpa Nodomir. Later, the two of them came to the rescue site on the Tiber River and built a new city. This new city is named after Romulus and is called Rome. "Rome" evolved from the voice of "Romulus".
