18.1 The Calendar and Time


The Achaean calendar as we know it predates the rise of Nicator, although of
course years are now numbered from the fall of the Seleucarian Empire.

There are 12 Achaean months with 25 days in each month. The months are:

 1) Sarapin    (mid-winter)         7) Valnuary   (mid-summer)
 2) Daedalan   (late winter)        8) Lupar      (late summer)
 3) Aeguary    (early spring)       9) Phaestian  (early autumn)
 4) Miraman    (mid-spring)        10) Chronos    (mid-autumn)
 5) Scarlatan  (late spring)       11) Glacian    (late autumn)
 6) Ero        (early summer)      12) Mayan      (early winter)
