PEPLUM illustration

From Wikipedia: When Brennus attacked Rome, Marcus Manlius Capitolinus was alerted to the Gallic attack by the sacred geese of Juno.

This illustration is part of some ad campaign for Liebig meats (viande Liebig), which showcased other famous moments of history.

This moment was portrayed twice in PEPLUM films, including BRENNUS - ENEMY OF ROME and REVENGE OF THE BARBARIANS.
