We are taught that the city of Rome is very old. We are also taught that the history of the city of Rome was tied into the legend of the Capitoline Wolf. There is also a plausible explanation of why the symbol of Rome ended up in Siena, but...
  • there is no plausible explanation for the below Capitoline Elephant located inside the Siena Cathedral
  • there is no plausible explanation of why Rome is depicted as one of the eight subordinate to Siena cities
  • there is no plausible explanation for S.P.Q.S.

Will try to finish up the contents of this article when I have time. Have things to do. You are welcome to post whatever you think is relevant. A few pointers for the time being:
  • This here is Emperor Nero. The one who allegedly crucified Saint Peter.

  • And this here is Pope Leo X, aka Giovanni de' Medici, aka Nero... me thinks.​
  • While this here is Marcus Aurelius, whose "conventional" name we are yet to figure out.

Or... could it be that our Rome was originally a part of the vast Scythian Empire?

KD: So why did historians assign the wolf with kids to Rome?

The description of the image says that these were the allied cities.
The internal circle represents Arezzo - Wikipedia, Orvieto - Wikipedia, Rome - Wikipedia, Perugia - Wikipedia, Viterbo - Wikipedia, Pisa - Wikipedia, Lucca - Wikipedia and Florence - Wikipedia.
The external circle represents Massa - Wikipedia, Grosseto - Wikipedia, Pistoia - Wikipedia and Volterra - Wikipedia.
About the Senese Wolf, it is said on the Italian wiki (Lupa senese - Wikipedia) that commemorates the foundation of Siena by Senius and Aschius, sons of Remus, brother of Romulus who founded Rome. That doesn't explain the elephant though.

I had read about that possible connection on Fomenko's book "Vatican", which some years ago was available in Italian translation on his website.

In the Libreria Piccolomini in Siena (Libreria Piccolomini; Siena Cathedral) you can find many portraits and paintings regarding Aeneas Silvius Bartholomeus. Basically they represent his entire life on paintings. In that place we can find the picture above representing Siena and the other cities, so there is certainly a connection.
