The sacred bull of Dionysos CENTER: Sacrifice to Mars The 'Martial Games' which were celebrated annually, constituted the principal festival of Mars. Their features were a horse-race in the circus, and afterwards the sacrifice of a horse in Mars's field or Campus Martius. The engraving represents the ceremony of this sacrifice. A magnificent statue of the god stands on a beautiful pedestal, before which is an altar on which the fire is burning. At the side of the altar are vases and sacrificial vessels, the officiating priest stands before it, and after offering a proscribed prayer, casts a laurel twig into the flames. Behind him is seen a youth crowned with laurel and playing martial music, and at his left is a boy with the sacred casket. Several other priests, adorned with wreaths and engaged in minor parts of the sacrifice, appear in connexion with armed men around the horse which is to be sacrificed. One man standing behind the statue of the god holds a laurel crown. The name of our month March (Martius) was obviously derived from Mars, and being the first in the Roman year, is an evidence of the exalted rank which the Romans assigned to him.

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
