The Roman statue of Tiber river with Romulus and Remus

The Roman river Tiber appears here as a traditional river god: a reclining male figure, mature and bearded.

Romulus and Remus are located under an arm of the Tiber.

Isis and Sarapis Temple

The Roman statue of Tiber was discovered in Rome in 1512, on the site of the Iseum Campense, an ancient temple dedicated to Isis and Sarapis. In front of the temple of Isis, there were actually two mirroring statues, the statue of the Tiber river and the statue of the Nile river. The Nile statue is located in the Vatican.

It is difficult to date this statue precisely. The Tiber and the Nile were often represented during the reign of Hadrian (AD 117-138).

It is carved from marble taken from Mount Pentelicus near Athens, Greece.
