 CalendarHome.com - Julian calendar - Calendar Encyclopedia
The problems became particularly acute during Julius Caesar's pontificate, 63 BC to 46 BC, when there were only five intercalary months, whereas there should have been eight, and none at all during the five Roman years before 46 BC.
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).

 Roman to Julian Conversion: AUC 708 = 46 BC
Roman to Julian Conversion: AUC 708 = 46 BC This is the year in which Caesar decided on the reform of the Republican calendar.
However, in 47 BC, the Antiochene calendar cannot yet have been aligned to the Julian calendar, since the Julian reform had not yet been promulgated.
Since the length of AUC 708 = 46 can be established independently of this datum, the result is actually more important for determining the alignment of the unreformed Antiochene calendar than it is for the Roman calendar.
