Apollinires Ludi were games celebrated annually by the ancient Romans in honor of Apollo, and instituted during the second Punic war, B.C. 212. The praetor presided, and ten men were appointed to see that the sacrifices were offered after the manner of the Greeks. At first the day was chosen by the praetor; but in the year U.C. 545 they were appointed to be held regularly about the nones of July.
