This area of the site gives access to a discussion of the analysis underlying the conversion of Roman dates used at this site. The three dropdown menus above point to the individual discussions. They are organised as follows:
Topics: Discussions of a number of general and particular topics, including:
- Particular synchronisms: The Nemean games; the eclipse of Ennius; the Tumultus Lepidianus
- Calendrical: Festival-based dates; imperial nundinal cycle; fasti consulares; reforms of 222, 191, 154, 45 and 8
- Research: Triumphs; the Latin Festival; pontifical intercalation policy
Individual Years: Analyses of individual years. An entry exists if there is data relating to that year or if there is a specific argument required to arrive at the length or dates of the year. The major entries are: 250, 242, 222, 217, 191, 190, 169, 168, 140, 112, 86, 77, 67, 53, 46, 45, 41, 24 and 8.
