Ides of January

On this day in 69 AD, the Emperor Galba was murdered in the streets of Rome.

Also, this day marked the Carmentalia. Festival to honor Carementis, river nymph and goddess of prophecy.

Another ceremony held on this day was the Feast of the Ass. 

Orientis partibus
Adventavit Asinus
Pulcher et fortissimus
Sarcinis aptissimus.
