The Women of Rome Gathering at the Capitol  1600

by Pieter Isaacsz.

Women from various countries and eras are seen storming the Capitol in ancient Rome in protest against a proposed ruling that would henceforth allow men to have two wives. This rumour had been spread by the young boy Papirius, seen standing at the far right between his mother (in yellow) and several senators (in red).
