I was on a rabble with mates and we mentioned that there was 13 months, then said "What was it called"...After a wiki roam, I found something worth mentioning.

Searched Mercedonius to find 1 result, a reply in a topic about the Pope,

What I find strange is the story following a few links.

Well, the 13th month was called Intercalaris and it was DECIDED by Pontifex Maximus.

The decision whether to insert the intercalary month was made by the pontifex maximus

Intercalaris - Paragraph 2

Pontifex Maximus?

This was the most important position in the Ancient Roman religion, open only to patricians until 254 BC

Pontifex maximus


The term "patrician" originally referred to a group of elite families in ancient Rome

subsequently "patrician" became a vaguer term used for aristocrats and elite bourgeoisie in many countries


Following all that and seeing how the Elite could control the concept of time that far back...Why can't everyone see what's going on nowadays?

Because people are too occupied lol Distractions everywhere

Never Forget...History Repeats.
