Description (see definition): Flat-topped, ice-covered mountain over 1,625 m, standing between Romulus Glacier and Martin Glacier close ESE of Black Thumb and 5 mi E of the head of Rymill Bay, on the W coast of Graham Land. First roughly surveyed in 1936 by the BGE under Rymill. Resurveyed in 1948-49 by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) who applied the name. This mountain lies near the heads of Romulus and Remus Glaciers, and the name derives from the mythological story of the she-wolf which fed these twins after they had been thrown into the Tiber.
