Don't believe everything you read there, either :)
I noticed that in language/year abbreviations it says
A.U.C. somewhere and explains it like so :
"(_anno urbis conditae_, "in the year of the building of the city" i.e., Rome, in 753 B.C.)"
This is not true, the abbreviation was always used in the following way, which makes more sense linguistically. :
"ab urbe condita", which means : From/after the building of the city. IE this many years after april 21th 753 B.C.
References? Read some Caecar/Plinus/Cicero/Livius, untranslated. Especially Titus Livius.
Hmm..I think I'm going to mail this to those guys. I was just browsing some of the stuff there, but this irritated me somehow.
"Let's not include text here.."
