The feast of Minerva was the time when the Romans were offering gifts in honor of Minerva – the goddess of wisdom, art and craft.

She was also called the “goddess of a thousand works”. Her temple was on the hill Celius and Aventine. The festival was celebrated in her honor on March 19, June 19 and September 19.

Together with Jupiter and Juno, she was member of the Capitoline Triad.
