Origin[edit | edit source]

Romulus and Remus were twin brothers who founded Rome. Abandoned to die on the banks of the Tiber River, they were miraculously located by a mother wolf and later shepherd’s family who raised them. Proven to be natural leaders, they set out to found their own city. A disagreement ensued over which hill to build the foundations on. After attempts to settle the matter proved fruitless, Remus tried climbing over Romulus’ newly erected wall and was killed in anger. During his reign, he invited local Sabine and Latin men to celebrate their new neighbor while the Romans kidnapped their daughters and held them within the city. Tensions simmered until a truce was reached, where the women were returned and the cities decided to inhabit separate territories.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Used by the co-founder of Rome in order to persuade the Sabine women to accept Roman husbands, the metals in the amulet adjust pitches to create intense hypnotic states of adoration. The effect is potent only on nearby women, attracting them to the user with their complete attention.

Collection[edit | edit source]

Collected from famed composer and musician Franz Liszt, who hid the artifact in his pianos during performances, sparking Lisztomania. An intense desire overcame audience members to be witness to his seemingly majestic performances.
