Today is a festival day for Mens Bona. In accordance with a Sibylline oracle a temple was vowed to the Goddess Mens Bona (Mind or Right Thinking) by the praetor T. Otacilius in 217 BCE after the battle of Trasimene. Mens was deified and personified, as a warning, to encourage the Romans at a time of crisis to remember their religious duties, after not doing so led C. Flaminius into disaster at Trasimene.
