Catanaean brothers

According to myth the Catanaean brothers (Amphinomos and Anapios) carried their parents to safety from Catania, Sicily during an eruption of Mt. Etna. The burden slowed their own escape, but the lava parted around them, and the family was miraculously saved. For the Romans the story of the Catanaean brothers exemplified familial piety.
