Tito Livio and other ancient authors tell us that shortly after the founding of Rome, was fought in the future Roman Forum, a great battle between the Romans and the Sabines. Because of this it was a betrayal of the vestal virgin, Tarpeia, daughter of the commander of the nearby Roman fortress Spurius Tarpeia, which, by Titus Tatius bribed with gold, did enter the fortified citadel on the Capitol a squad of armed men by deception. [2] the occupation of the fortress of the Sabines, led the two armies to stand at the foot of two hills (the Palatine and the Capitol, later to be built right where the Roman forum [3]), while the leaders of both parties were inciting their soldiers to fight: Metius Curzio for Sabines and the Romans Ostio hostile. The battlefield was surrounded by many hills, does not give the two armies sufficient escape routes or limited areas to chase the enemy "on course". [4] It is said that during the battle, Romulus, seeing his back, cried and promised Jupiter, if you win a temple dedicated to him (near the Roman Forum), [5] and then launched himself in the midst of battle, managing to fight back to the places where a few years later, fate would be known as the Director and the temple of Vesta. [6] [7] It was at this time that the Sabine women, who had been abducted earlier by the Romans, is launched in a hail of bullets between the contending factions to divide and placate the anger. [8] "On one hand, begged their husbands (the Romans) and the other fathers (the Sabines). They prayed not to commit a horrible crime, stained with the blood of a father or a son-in and avoid being guilty of patricide that would give birth to their children, grandchildren and children to each other. » (Tito Livio, Ab Urbe seasoned books, I, 13.)
