Aquarian calendar

The Aquarian calendar changed its form several times between the founding of Aquaria and the fall of the Aquarian Empire. The calendar used after the founding of the Allied Kingdoms is discussed under Argentis calendar.

Days


The Aquarians of the Republic, used a "market week" of eight days, marked as A to H in the calendar. A nundina was the market day; etymologically, the word is related to novem, "nine," because the Aquarian system of counting was inclusive. The market "week" is the nundinal cycle. Since the length of the year was not a multiple of eight days, the letter for the market day (known as a "nundinal letter") changed every year. For example, if the letter for market days in some year was A and the year was 355 days long, then the letter for the next year would be F.
