Egyptian Calendar ~ Silver Coin in Fame Case

Price from:   8100 грн

The ancient Egyptian calendar – a civil calendar – was a solar calendar with a 365-day year. The year consisted of three seasons of 120 days each, plus an intercalary month of five epagomenal days treated as outside of the year proper. Each season was divided into four months of 30 days.

The Egyptian calendar is one of the first calendars known to mankind.

The ancient Egyptians then discovered the lunar year and divided it for seasons, months, days and hours. They were able to distinguish between a simple year and a leap, an astronomical miracle at the time.

The calendar was calculated based on the sun cycle, and is one of the first calendars known to mankind and the most accurate in terms of climate conditions and agriculture during the year, where the Egyptian farmer has been relying on it to determine the seasons of agriculture and crop yielding for thousands of years.

The Egyptian calendar contributed to the development of different calendars of ancient civilizations, whether they were solar or lunar. Although thousands of years have passed since the beginning of the ancient Egyptian calendar, which relied on the Nile flood in determining the beginning of the year, it is also the current calendar that regulates agriculture in Egypt in modern times.

Тhe ancient Egyptian calendar is highly accurate and was a miracle of its time. However, it is not exactly in line with the current Gregorian calendar used around the world.
