Ludi Romani

Today was the festival of the Ludi Romani. The festival began with a ritual for Jupiter in his temple up on the Capitoline Hill. The King of the Gods showed his favor by giving all those in attendance a special item.

Afterwards, everyone went to the Circus Maximus to watch the chariot races. Franck Gazov of the Legion and the Praetorians came in first place and took home the purse. Achille Back came in second.

You can find photos of the festival here in our Flickr page.
