About the Book

The Constantinopolitan era places the birth of Christ in the year 5509, and commences on the 1st September. Thus the 31st August, of the first year of the Christian era, is the last day of the year 5508 of the Constantinopolitan era. 

The Byzantine historians also use the Indiction as the common method of recording the year. This mode of notation commences from the 1st of September, a.d. 312, but no indication is given to determine the particular time beyond the year of the indiction, counting from 1 to 15, and then recommencing, unless the year of the world or some other synchronism be added.

About the Author
George Finlay

About the Author
Finlay was born at Faversham, Kent, where his Scottish father, Captain John Finlay FRS, an officer in the Royal Engineers, was inspector of government powder mills. His father died in 1802, and his Scottish mother and uncle (Kirkman Finlay) took hand of his education. His love of history was attributed to his mother. Intended for the law, he was educated at the University of Glasgow, the University of Gottingen, and the University of Edinburgh, but becoming an enthusiast in the cause of Greece, he joined Byron in the war of independence, and thereafter bought a property near Athens, where he settled and busied himself with schemes for the improvement of the country, which met with little success. His History of Greece, produced in sections between 1843 and 1861, did not at first receive the recognition which its merits deserved, but it has since been given by scholars in all countries, and specially in Germany, a place among works of permanent value, alike for its literary style and the depth and insight of its historical views. It was re-issued in 1877 as A History of Greece from the Roman Conquest to the Present Time (146 BC to 1864).
