Aemilian, July or August - October 253 A.D.
|Aemilian|, |Aemilian,| |July| |or| |August| |-| |October| |253| |A.D.|, Mars was the god of war and also an agricultural guardian. He was the father of Romulus and Remus, the legendary founders of Rome. In early Rome, he was second in importance only to Jupiter, and the most prominent of the military gods in the religion of the Roman army. Most of his festivals were held in March, the month named for him (Latin Martius), and in October, which began and ended the season for military campaigning and farming.
