  Attic calendar - Education - Information - Educational Resources - Encyclopedia - Music
The Attic calendar is the name of the calendar used in Ancient Athens.
It is a lunisolar calendar, combining elements of solar calendars and lunar calendars.
Each year began near the autumnal equinox, and was divided into 12 months, each beginning with the new moon.

  Greek Calendars - Crystalinks
After Alexander's conquest of the Persian Empire, the Macedonian calendar came to be widely used by the Greeks in the East, though in Egypt it was supplanted by the Egyptian year at the end of the 3rd century BC.
In Egypt, however, the calendar year, marked with the summer rising of the Nile, begins with the rising of Sirius ("Sothis" in the Egyptian calendar).
Calendar systems are always part of the deepest embedded layers of culture, and Kerenyi remarks "The connecting link could only have been the Minoan culture", where the Greek archaeologist Spyridon Marinatos connected the orientation of Minoan palaces with the summer rising of Sirius.

 Attic calendar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Attic calendar was an exclusively local phenomenon, used to regulate the internal affairs of the Athenians and with little relevance to the outside world.
In the 5th century this calendar was sun-based using a year of 365 or 366 days and paying no attention at all to the phases of the moon.
One of the main roles of the civic calendar was to position the four assembly meetings that were to be held each prytany.

 The Ancient Greek Calendar | polysyllabic
All the Greek calendars were lunisolar and shared the same basic features of the other lunisolar calendars we've examined so far: twelve months, with a periodic intercalation of a thirteenth.
The Athenian calendar is the best known and most intensively studied, and I shall therefore use it as a model.
Abundant epigraphical evidence demonstrates that in the civil calendar, while the archons inserted approximately the correct number of intercalary months over the long term, the specific corrections were somewhat arbitrary, as the archons saw fit.

 Maddy's Treasure Chest - Ty Attic - Retired
Attic Treasures are a hit with collectors, because their faces, bodies, and clothes have so many interesting details that give unmistakable character to each special Attic Treasure.
Attic Treasures have been rising in value faster than Beanie Babies, particularly the retired characters because they become so difficult to find after they are retired.
The Attic Treasures are recommended for ages 3 to 100, and the Ty tag says that you should remove all tags and other accessories before giving to a child under the age of 3.

 Attic Ventilation Design Strategies for Manufactured Homes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
The literature reveals that ventilation of attic and cathedral ceiling air cavities have been recommended building practices for four reasons: moisture control, energy conservation, asphalt shingle durability, and ice dam prevention.
The practice of ventilating all attics is based on research conducted in cold climates.
A program of testing is proposed to evaluate various attic design strategies including an unvented attic constructed simply by eliminating the ventilation openings, a sealed attic constructed by intentionally sealing the roof cavity, an attic with insulation in the roof plane, and a conventionally constructed vented attic.

A helpful tip in controlling the wildlife that may inhabit your attic space is implementing the use of moth balls on a regular basis.
When you are done with this project you may want to mark your calendar on a quarterly basis to remind you when to toss a new box of moth balls around up there.
Understand that many of the boxes you have "stuffed" in your attic contain a conglomeration of items from other living areas that were cleaned.

 Lodi (California) Home and Garden Show 2004
• An under-ventilated attic (in combination with a poorly insulated attic) in the winter is a major cause of destructive ice dams and, hence, roof leaks.
Other types of ventilation (turbines, attic fans, gable vents and dormer vents) interfere with the dynamics of the ridge-soffit vent combination and must, therefore, be removed or sealed.
The size and quantity of attic fans needed is determined by the size of the attic.

 attic - Definitions from Dictionary.com
The term Attic order in classical architecture meant a small, square decorative column of the type often used in a low storey above a building's main facade, a feature associated with the region around Athens (see Attic).
The word then was applied to "a low decorative facade above the main story of a building" (1696), and it came to mean the space enclosed by such a structure.
"An attic is upright, a garret is in a sloping roof" [Weekley].

 Hellenic calendar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Hellenic calendar—or more properly, the Hellenic calendars, for there was no uniform calendar imposed upon all of Classical Greece—began soon after the June solstice, at the time when the star Sirius rose just after the moment of dawn, its heliacal rising.
According to Hipparchus, a Greek astronomer of the 2nd century BCE, Sirius rose with the sun at the latitude of Rhodes on July 19, about a month following the summer solstice.
As Karl Kerenyi points out (Kerenyi 1976, pp 29ff), the onset of the fiercest killing heat of summer is a counter-intuitive beginning point for the Greek calendar.

the year of the boule of 500 may have begun in Skirophorion, while the civil calendar, which was controlled by the archons, began in Hekatombaion.
Archons were responsible for making adjustments to the civil calendar (inserting extra days or an extra month), and the civil calendar could be out of phase with the moon.
