ante diem vi idus octobres

  • rites in honour of Juno Moneta — apparently commemorating a restoration of the temple vowed by M. Furius Camillus in 345 B.C.; the epithet ‘moneta’ possible recognized Juno’s role in goading the sacred geese to wake everyone up during the Gallic sack of Rome
  • ludi Augustales scaenici (day 6 — from 11-19 A.D. and post 23 A.D.)
  • 19 A.D. — Germanicus, the adopted son of the emperorTiberius, dies under mysterious circumstances in Daphne near Antioch
