Capitoline Museums

I loved the Capitoline Museums in Rome, where I saw some wonderful art from the Mediterranean world spanning thousands of years. If this is art from the same region of the world, in which of the GRAPES (Geography, Religion, Art/Architecture/Achievements, Political Systems, Economic Systems, Social Classes) do you think it fits?

The lion attacking a horse was the symbol of the Roman Empire until it was replaced by the she-wolf suckling the twin boys Remus and Romulus. According to tradition, this statue signified a good government protecting its people against corruption. Which do you think is a better symbol for Rome and why?
