In the early days of Nova Roma, we established a tradition of live chat sessions each Market Day. This tradition is being revived in C. Buteone Po. Minucia cos. MMDCCLIX a.u.c..

Market Days occur once each nundinium - they are thus eight days apart, spaced evenly throughout the year. The Roman Calendar designated each day with a letter from A through H, with this cycle repeating, and in a given year each market day would occur on the day in that cycle with a particular letter.

For the year C. Buteone Po. Minucia cos. MMDCCLIX a.u.c., market days occur on the "C" day of each nundinium.

Each Market Day, all citizens are invited to the IRC chat sessions. While this service is available at any time, it is hoped that by choosing a particular time, more people will participate then, and a large number of people can be encountered then.

There are two recommended times to participate on Market Days:

  • 7 PM (19:00) Roman Time ( GMT + 1)
  • 7 PM (19:00) US/Central ( GMT - 6; 8 PM Eastern, 5 PM Pacific )

To join the chat, download an IRC client and go to the URL irc:// . Further details about the software, the channel, and setting your name can be found at the IRC (Nova Roma) article.
