This Day in Ancient History:

ante diem xii kalendas septembres

  • Consualia — festival involving games/chariot races in honour of Consus and other assorted divinities; one of the races apparently featured chariots pulled by mules
  • 753 B.C.(?) – rape of the Sabine women (which traditionally happened during the celebration of the above)
