Quintilis


Quintilis

: "Also see: Quintilus in 12-month Roman calendar".

In the 10-month Roman calendar, Quintilis is after Junius, and "Quintilis" is Latin for "fifth" from the phrase "quintilis mensis" (meaning "fifth month"). "Quintilis" (capitalized) was the former Latin name for the fifth (later seventh) month in the Roman calendar that occurred after Junius and before Sextilis. Quintilis/Quintilus was renamed to "Julius" in honor of Julius Caesar, who was born in that month. "Los Cielos de Agosto" (Spanish: "The Skies of August"), Jorge R. Ianiszewski, "Circulo Astronomico", 2006, webpage: [http://www.circuloastronomico.cl/cielo/agosto.html CirA-Agosto] .]
