Ab Homocene Condita
Or, The Ideal* Calendar*
(In The Year Since The Founding Of The Mans Era / Uel Idealum* et Calendrum*)
This page last updated: the Fifteenth Day Before the Kalends of Quintilis, 12763 (1 July +2009)
- The calendar starts on the Twelfth Day Before the Kalends of Maius, 10000. This does not change the ordering of the months, just adds an odd uptick date.
- The date follows the Julian calendar. To constrain its power, you see.
- You have to say stuff like "the twelfth day before the kalends of maius", because that sounds funny.
- Hopefully annoys both regular people and Holocene Era people
- Depending on definition, about as possible a start date for the human era as 00753 (-10000)
- Has a year zero
- The religion it's peskily attached to isn't a major world religion
- Might get you some pasta from a grateful grandmother
- More inaccurate than the Gregorian, Julian, or Holocene- Josh Carpenter was probably born with an uncertainty between years -5 and +4 (10748 to 10757), while the uncertainty in the founding of Rome is between years -813 and -728 (09939 and 10026)
- Follows the Julian calendar
Bet on Roman successor states here.
