The Romans did not number days of a month sequentially
from the first through the last day. Instead, they
counted back from three fixed points of the month: the
Nones(5th or 7th, depending on the length of the month)
the Ides(13th or 15th), and the Kalends(1st of the
following month). The Ides occurred near the midpoint,
on the 13th for most months, but ON THE 15TH (capitals
deliciously mine) for March, May, July, and October.
The Ides were supposed to be determined by the full
moon, reflecting the lunar origin of the Roman Calendar. In the earliest calendar the Ides of March
would have been the first full moon of the new year.
Bobby, thank you for this public forum opportunity
to expose you for the bald-faced unmitigated fabulist
that you are
God help us, CRM has discovered Wikipedia. I foresee more increasingly frantic lectures and finger wagging.
Bald-faced? Persons whose eyeballs turn inwards wouldn’t notice that I have a mustache.
What is more interesting is Na Hora could be translated to In Time.
