Long Description:
Figurgruppen blev opstillet 30. juli 1901 som pendant til Nilen. Selv om Tiber-floden er såre beskeden i forhold til Nilen, er den figurlige fremstilling af floden, der løber gennem Rom, en lige så vældig kæmpe.

Han hviler på sin albue og holder i den ene hånd et overflødighedshorn, i den anden et ror, symboliserende henholdsvis velstand og samfærdsel. Ved hans side ligger den romerske ulvinde, som dier tvillingerne Romulus og Remus. På bronzesoklens sider ses dyremotiver (heste, får, køer og tigre) samt figurer, der bader. Andre repræsenterer handelslivet.

Originalen blev fundet i 1512 i Isis-templet Iseo Campense nær S. Maria sopra Minerva, Rom.
