I will sponsor a Literary Contest for the Ludi Megalenses (Megalesia):
Requirements: Write a poem about or related to the Magna Mater.
All entries for this category should be posted to the Porticus of Pompey Forum from April 4th to April 8th.
Please post ALL entries for the Literary Contest to this thread, so that we can keep them all in the same place for review by the community.
The winner will be determined by vote of the community. Voting will continue through April 9th.
Send your votes by Private Message (preferred) to Lucius Vitellius Triarius or email me at lvtriarius AT yahoo DOT com no later than Midnight Rome Time on April 9th.
Winners will be announced in the Porticus of Pompey Forum on April 10th.
I will pledge 20 denarii to the winner.
Optime valete and good writing!
L. Vitellius Triarius
Here goes! I’m not the strongest in poetry, and Cybele is not a deity I know too terribly much about :/
Mother of the Earth, Mother of All
She came to us on the eve of our fall
With no priests or lovers to call her own
She led us to victory as the Sibyll had shown
On this week of her holy time
Games and revelies to let her name shine
May our Megalensia be grand and plentiful
And our dedicate to Her never be doubtful
Di vos incolumem custodiant!
L. Aurelius Curio
Sorry for the extreme delay in posting this. I’m playing catch up ball after being sick.
Congrats to L. Aurelius Curio for winning the Literary Contest for the Megalesia!
Hopefully, more of you will explore your creative side in the future Ludi contests.
Thank you very much, Triarius. I look forward to any future competitions!
I have added a victory badge in recognition of your success. Congrats!
