Actian Games

Actian Games On the promontory of Actium, in Acarnania, Apollo had an ancient temple, where, every three years, a feast was held with games and fights. At the opening of this feast an ox was killed and given to the flies to feast upon, so that they might not trouble those participating in the feast. Augustus celebrated this feast upon the occasion of his victory over Antony, near Actium.
