This is one of the Nova Roma wiki help files.

We have a large set of templates that simplify inserting Roman-style dates into wiki articles. The inserted dates also provide modern date glosses as hover text.

Contents

Example

Templates always use pairs of braces. If you enter:

{{Jul 7}} {{2000}}

This is what will appear in the article:

Non. Quin.  Q. Maximo M. Minucio cos.  MMDCCLIII a.u.c.

Years

Conversion

Templates convert recent years to Roman-style consular dating. (List of available templates).

Roman Dates

Conversion

  • Months use three letter abbreviations without a period: Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec
  • Days are not padded with leading zeroes.

  • {{Feb 28b}}


Today

Type:

{{{{CURRENTMONTHABBREV}} {{CURRENTDAY}}}}

to get today in Roman dating:

a.d. VII Kal. Iun. 

"Today is a.d. VII Kal. Iun. ." or "Hodiernus dies a.d. VII Kal. Iun. est."


Market day

Nundinal letter this year

Type:

{{marketday}} 

for the current market day. It is now set to G.

Nundinal letter today

Type:

{{#switch: {{ #expr: {{ #time: z }} mod 8 }} | 0=A | 1=B | 2=C | 3=D | 4=E | 5=F | 6=G | 7=H }}
or
{{TodayLetter}}

for the nundinal letter for "today". The letter today is B.

Time in Rome

Due to caching of pages, it is not possible to get the accurate time within the wiki. The LOCALTIME template should *NOT* be used.
