  Roman calendar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It led to the reform of the Lex Acilia in 191 BC.
For this reason, a law was passed in 287 BC (the Lex Hortensia) that forbade the holding of meetings of the comitia (for example to hold elections) on market days, but permitted the holding of legal actions.
Before 190 BC the alignment between the Roman and Julian years is determined by clues such as the dates of harvests mentioned in the sources.

Throughout the period of Hebrew domination, however, its political connections were always with Syria rather than with the Philistines: thus, about 725 BC it joined Sidon and Tyre in a revolt against Shalmaneser V.
About 153 BC Alexander Balas, son of Antiochus Epiphanes, contesting the Syrian crown with Demetrius, seized the city, which opened its gates to him.
Jonathan threw in his lot with Alexander, and in 150 BC he was received by him with great honour in Ptolemais.

In 130 BC, for example, when Empress Chen was found to have retained witches to curse Consort Wei and to try to regain Emperor Wu's affections, he had her deposed and the witches executed.
Also in 109 BC, Emperor Wu sent an expeditionary force against the Kingdom of Dian (modern eastern Yunnan), planning on conquering it, but when the King of Dian surrendered, Dian was incorporated into Han territory with the King of Dian being permitted to keep his traditional authority and title.
In 105 BC, Emperor Wu gave a princess from a remote collateral imperial line to Kunmo (昆莫), the King of Wusun (Issyk Kol basin) in marriage, and she later married his grandson and successor Qinqu (芩娶), creating a strong and stable alliance between Han and Wusun.

 Julian calendar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The chronologist Joseph Scaliger established in 1583 that the Augustan reform was instituted in 8 BC, and inferred that the sequence of leap years was 42, 39, 36, 33, 30, 27, 24, 21, 18, 15, 12, 9 BC, AD 8, 12 etc. This proposal is still the most widely accepted solution.
Roman dates before 32 BC were typically a day or two before the day with the same Julian date, so 1 January in the Roman calendar of the first year of the Julian reform actually fell on 31 December 46 BC (Julian date).
A curious effect of this is that Caesar's assassination on the Ides (15th day) of March in 44 BC fell on 14 March 44 BC in the Julian calendar.

Spanish Wars 205 -133 BC According to the historian Livy, Rome first made Spain a province in 218 BC when the senate declared that Hispania should be one of the two areas (the other being "Africa with Sicily") named for the consuls of the year.
In 151 BC so many men resisted conscription into the army that the tribunes even arrested the consuls for refusing to grant exemptions; the same thing happened again thirteen years later.
Sertorius was appointed governor of Hispania Citerior in 83 BC.

It has also sometimes been suggested that 45 BC was a leap year.
In 1999, an Egyptian papyrus was published which gives an ephemeris table for 24 BC with both Roman and Egyptian dates.
From this it can be shown that the most likely sequence was in fact 44, 41, 38, 35, 32, 29, 26, 23, 20, 17, 14, 11, 8 BC, AD 4, 8, 12 etc., very close to that proposed by Matzat.

The city was founded about 300 BC by Seleukos I Nikator, the founder of the Seleukid Dynasty, and it became the principal capital of the Seleukid Empire.
Later in 305/4 BC, when Seleukos I took the diadem and assumed the royal title “King”, he retained the numbering of his regnal years in Babylon but employed the Makedonian calendar and thus pushed his accession year back to Dios, 312 BC (Dios was the first month of the Makedonian calendar; it corresponds to October-November).
Timarchus was appointed governor of Media before 162/1 BC either by the regent Lysias or by Antiochos IV: He (Antiochos IV) appointed Timarchus a satrap of Babylon and Heraclides as treasurer, two brothers, both of whom had been his favourites.

After all, the beginning of spring is a logical time to start a new year because it’s the season of rebirth, blossoms and the planting of crops.
In 153 BC, the Roman Senate declared January 1 to be the beginning of the new year.
Julius Caesar actually established what is known today as the Julian Calendar in 153 BC, and left the start of the new year at January 1.

The original Roman calendar (year of Romulus) was a ten-month year based on agriculture.
Until 153 BC, March was the first month of the year, and the forms septem-, octo-, novem-, and decem- made a lot more sense in naming the months.
Additional changes came with the calendar reform of Julius Caesar in 45 BC.

The latter work is clearly strongly reminiscent of the so-called NEO-ATTIC sculptures of the later 2nd century BC, since the figures on its shield were apparently copied from the shield of the Athena Parthenos of PHEIDIAS.
The portrait of Agesarchos may be datable to the same period, since his home city Triteia was described not as Achaean but as Arcadian, as it briefly was in 146 BC.
Since Timarchides is not included in Pliny’s list of sculptors of the 156th Olympiad, he may have been Timokles’ younger brother, though precisely which of the two known sculptors named Timarchides he was is disputed.
