In a few days, November 4th, we will celebrate the Ludi Plebeii with the purpose of entertaining the plebs of Rome, we the plebeians. They will run until the 17th of November.
In the past, the Ludi Plebeii may have celebrated the plebeian’s political liberty after the struggle known as the Conflict of the Orders and the end of the dominance of the patricians in the Roman politic. They were a festival providing theatre plays, athletic competitions, chariot races and lots of free food and wine.
As plebeian aedile, it is my responsability and my honor, with the assistance of quaestor consularis O. Marius Bestia, to organise and present you these Ludi. They will be celebrated through different games and contests and we hope to see many of you competing. Note that the patricians are invited to participate to the games.
