Ancient Calendar & Pagan Holidays: June 8: Rome praises the Goddess Mens

On this day in Ancient History, Rome would have celebrated the Goddess Mens with a festival. It was the Anniversary of her Temple, which happened to be located within the capital of Rome itself, Capitoline Hill.

Mens was also known as, Mens Bona, which happened to be Latin for “Good Mind”. She stood for reason, intelligence and consciousness of the mind.

Advised by the Sibylline Books, Rome made a vow unto Mens around 217 BC.
