An alternative use of the name Ares is Mars. It even appears to be common to refer to this god as Mars (CAP: "Pilot") and there is even a day of the week or holiday celebrating this god under the name (TRS: "Occupation"). Mars is also the primary god worshipped by Taurons (Caprica), with Sam Adama dedicating a large part of his chest tattoo to this God.
The Temple of Mars is also prominent in Tauron religion, particularly when dealing with how loved ones pass on after a violent act (CAP: "Pilot" [[List of Deleted Scenes (Caprica)#Pilot (Caprica)}|deleted scene]]).
