ALMANAC,

FOR THE YEAR

the 2602d year since the era of Nabonassar, which has been as-
signed to Wednesday, the 26th of February, of the 3967th
year of the Julian Period, which corresponds, according to
the chronologists, to the 747th, and, according to the astron-
omers, to the 746th year before the birth of Christ;
the 2631st year of the Olympiads, or the third year of the 658th
Olympiad, beginning in July, 1853, if we fix the era of the
Olympiads at 775 years before Christ, or at or about the
beginning of July of the year 3938 of the Julian Period;

the latter part of the 1271st and the beginning of the 1272d
year (of twelve lunations) since the Hegira, or flight of Ma-
homet, which, as is generally supposed, took place on the
16th of July, in the year 622 of the Christian era.
