La diffusion iconographique des mythes fondateurs de Rome dans l'Occident romain : spécificités hispaniques

Abstract : This is clearly in Hispania that local elites have shown the greatest dynamism in the iconographical spread of the legend of the origins of Rome. This aspect is illustrated in particular by the position assigned to the image of primordia Urbis in domestic decoration : mosaic depicting the Lupa Romana or discovery of the Lupercal, in Hispania, are more numerous than in any other province the empire. Moreover, this involvement of " notables " is also to be seen in the ornementation of the public space of the city. Hispania could so be proud to count a few replicas of the Forum Augustum .The Iberian Peninsula "illustrated", besides, for delivering the highest number of base of statues of the Roman she-wolf or of the lavinian sow, dedicated mostly by local magistrates, actors of the imperial cult or new citizens, on the forum of their city.
