Idus Martiae: Festum Annae Perennae, Attis

Postby Nerva on Wed Mar 10, 2010 11:57 am

Salvete Omnes!

Next Monday will be the Idus Martiae (ee-dus mar-te-eye). The term ides was used for the 15th day of the months of March, May, July, and October. The Ides of March was a festive day dedicated to the god Mars and a military parade was usually held. In modern times, the term Ides of March is best known as the date that Julius Caesar was killed in 44 B.C.

Legion Ireland will hold a parade, dedication of the standards to Mars and a celebration in honour of Caius Julius Caesar on Monday evening. If your interested in attending then just drop me a PM. Before you ask...No, there's no free drink...well maybe just a little ;)

Valete,

Nerva

Salvete Omnes!

Thanks to all who attended last night, I'm sure our father Caesar is most appreciative of our efforts ;)
