Ovid’s Birthday

, ,

Ovid, first-century marble bust, Uffizi Gallery, Florence.

Today in 54 B.C. was born Publius Ovidius Naso. He ranks, with his contemporaries Virgil and Horace, among the three greatest Latin poets. Ovid was, of the three, the most unruly and irreverent and consequently died in exile on the shores of the Black Sea.

Is that date corrected for the transition from the Roman Julian calendar to the modern (since Pope Gregory the Great) Gregorian calendar?

This is a problem with all classical era dates.


When is the bust scheduled to be destroyed by the Woke Left?
