Cincinnatus is the legendary Roman military leader from the 4th century B.C. He is shown here giving up the fasces, the bundle of rods in his right hand that is a symbol of leadership, to return to his life as a farmer. The Cincinnatus Association, which commissioned the work, was founded just after the American Revolution by a group of military officers, and one of its members, Governor Arthur St. Clair, gave Cincinnati its name. Created by Eleftherious Karkadoulias and Mercene Karkadoulias in 1988
