July 13 marks the Ludi Apollinares, games held in honor of Apollo, starting in 212 B.C.E. The events included horse races, stage performances, and theatrical drama. The annual festival was given as the result of a vow made to Apollo during the Second Punic War, which resulted in the Roman victory over the forces of Hannibal.
