Coptic Calendar

 

* It is the Pharaonic calender. The Copts started it on the year 284 A.D. On the memorial day where Diocletian sat on the throne of the Roman Empire. A great number of Copts were martyred in the period of his reign, that's why it was considered the starting point of the Coptic calendar.

* The names of the Coptic months are:

01 - Tut.

02 - Babah.

03 - Hatur.

04 - Kiahk.

05 - Tubah.

06 - Amshir.

07 - Baramhat

08 - Baramudah.

09 - Bashans.

10 - Baounah.

11 - Abib.

12 - Misrah.
