(făs`tī), in ancient Rome, dies fasti were days on which public business could be transacted without impiety. The word also came to be used for the calendars and almanacs that contained such information as holy days, festivals, and historical events. The first known fasti was published in 304 B.C.



in ancient Rome, originally the name for the days of the month that were deemed favorable for the conduct of state affairs; later, a name for the Roman calendar. The term fasti also denoted annual lists, drawn up by the pontifices, of the names of important public figures, such as magistrates, priests, and victorious generals who had been given a triumph. Surviving fasti have been collected by T. Mommsen in his Corpus inscriptionumLatinorum (vol. 1, Berlin, 1963).
