The Rape of the Sabine Women is an episode in the legendary history of Rome in which the first generation of Roman men acquired wives for themselves from the neighboring Sabine families. The English word "rape" is a conventional translation of Latinraptio, which in this context means "abduction" rather than its prevalent modern meaning of sexual violation.
"The Rape of the Sabine Woman" marble statue completed in 1583 by Giambologna won particular acclaim, and still has its place of honor near the Palazzo Vecchio.
