« A.U.C. 565 = 189 B.C. »

Livy 37.59.2 records that Scipio celebrated a triumph on the last day of the intercalary month; in the Fasti Triumphales this is rendered ambiguously as prid. Kal. Mart. However the length of the intercalation is not given. It is likely that it was 23 days long; see discussion under A.U.C. 566 = 188. Since A.U.C. 564 = 190 was a regular year and its Julian dates are known, this fixes the Julian dates of A.U.C. 565 = 189.
