Jupiter was the Roman counterpart to Zeus. In the list of Principal Roman dei- ties, Mars appears to have been second only to Jupiter and he was held in very high regard by the Latins from the earliest times. Probably the most important reason for that kind of reverence was the fact that Roman legend names Mars as the father of Romulus, founder of Rome. Mars was believed to be the son of Juno (Hera in Greece) who bore him after touching a wonder- ful spring-flower (a likely story). In addition to his position as the god of war, Mars also became known as one of the mightiest gods of nature. As a nature god, he accorded fer- tility and protection to fields, herds, and families, and was invoked at blessings during spring festivals to keep the crops free from sickness, bad weather, and any other kind of harm. As god of war, the symbols of Mars were the wild wolf, the woodpecker, and the lance. Before the start of a battle, the legion commander usually sacri- ficed to this god and would then strike his lance while crying out "Mars awakenF Sacrifices were made to Mars during campaigns, while military honors for valor were MARS A 1"t-century Mars found in the Forum of Nerva (Capitoline Museums, Rome) also conferred in his name. During early times there were about eight open areas or plains in the roman capi- tal that were set aside for exercise or amusement. The most celebrated plain was the one consecrated to Mars and called the "Campus Mar- tins." Teams of horses called "Equirra" competed in mock war games here about three- times a year. One of the par- ticipating horses was sacri- riced to Mars at the end of the games. The horse's blood was collected, preserved in a tem- ple, and entrusted to a spe- cial priest (flamen Martialis) where it was used only for purposes of purification. During ancient Roman times the term "flamen" was used to describe "one who kindles the sacrifi- cial fire." Flamen was also used to identify a special kind of priest in the worship of their gods. There were fif- teen flamen, of which three were high priests known as "flamines Majores". One of these high priests was called "flamen Dialis" or the high priest of Jupiter, the second was named "flamen Martialis" or the high priest of Mars, and the third was called "flamen Quirinalis" in honor of "Quirinus," the Sabine equivalent of Mars, who was worshipped as the founder of the old Roman capital. Lastly, we find that even Emperor Augustus got into the act when he built a mag- nificent temple to this god and named it "Mars Ultor" (Mars the Avenger). It was built in appreciation for the assistance he had received when he defeated Brutus and Cassius at the Battle of Philippi in 42 B.C., thus avenging the murder of his ancestor Julius Caesar.
