Calends

 

the name of the first day of the month in the ancientRoman calendar. Calends, like nones and ides, were used tocount the days of the month, which were reckoned backward from these days, for example, “the sixth day before the calends of March” or “the third day before the nones of January.” The expression ad Calendas Graecas denotes a time that will nevercome, since calends were used only in the ancient Roman calen-dar.
