Mars in Roman mythology
There are several Roman myths about Mars.
In one, Hera bore him, without Zeus, at the touch of a magic herb given her by Flora.
In another, he was the father of Romulus and Remus by Rhea Silvia, a Vestal Virgin.
Ovid, in Fasti, tells of Mars’s attempt to seduce Minerva.
In the only purely Roman myth, he is tricked into marrying the aged Anna Perenna.
