Saturn is a god of Roman mythology.He was identified in antiquity with the god Cronus of Greek mythology. The myths of the two gods are often blended.

The Saturnalia was a festival in honor of Saturn which occurred on December 17. It was originally only one day long but later lasted one week. During the Saturnalia, roles of master and slave were reversed, moral restrictions lessened, and the rules of etiquette ignored.

In Rome, Saturn Festival was held in Spring. Encyclopaedia Britannica says this festival became carnival.

Saturn had a temple on the Forum Romanum; it contained the Royal Treasury.

Saturn's wife was Ops, not Magna Mater, Rhea's equivalent.

Saturn was the father of Veritas.
