PA Fohn asked:

what is the photo\artwork on the cover?? Any ideas why THIS image/entity was chosen??

Colin B. I have the Oxford classics ed, 2008 reprint. It has a mosaic on the front, of the same thing: the she-wolf suckling Romulus and Remus.
John O That is the wolf which raised Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome. It is a famous statue which depicts the two of them suckling from the she wolf's teats.
