This painting depicts the capture of Rome, which is symbolised by the eponymous goddess who is led out of the city, her hands tied behind her back. The she-wolf that nursed Romulus, the mythical founder of Rome, and his twin brother Remus lies at her feet. A burning city is visible in the background.
