A roman in fact the first roman who mysteriously vanished is none other than Romulus, from whom the name of Rome derives from.
Romus and Remus are popularly regarded as lengendary figures, yet there is no good reason at all to think that they did not exist. Their so called divine birth- they were to be the sons of the war god Mars.
