Today is the second Equirria, the first is earlier in the year. This is a festival held in honor of Mars and the founding of Rome. In antiquity it was one of the events marking the start of the campaigning season.
May we keep those within the military in mind today, and may we mark today as the start of our own campaign in refounding the Res Publica. Instead of leaving the city for battle as in antiquity, let us head out into the world and gather together everyone that loves Rome and living the Roman Way! Let us lead by example and show the best our community has to offer.
Below is a transcript and photo of the ceremony conducted on behalf of the Res Publica for Equirria. Myrrh, frankincense, and grain was offered.quote :
