Calendar (Coptic)

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. 13 - The small month or Nissieh.
