On March 19, the Roman festival of Quinquatria or Quinquatrus began, initially dedicated to Mars. Over time, when Minerva began to patronize craftsmen and craft attributes received their sacred place on the Aventine, Quinquatrus changed their character and became a celebration of craftsmen and young people learning (it consisted minerval for their teachers, tuition fee).
