Day 467 of lockdown.
Short of inspiration and tired of life because it’s all so very bloody depressing, I decided to look up the number 467 to see if there was anything significant about it, aside from it being a prime number.
Actually, Wikipedia didn’t mention that it was a prime number, but it did have lots of exciting info about the year 467.
Year 467 (CDLXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday, of the Julian calendar, the 467th Year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 467th year of the 1st millennium, the 67th year of the 5th century, and the 8th year of the 460s decade. At the time, it was known as the Year of the Consulship of Pusaeus and Iohannes (or, less frequently, year 1220 Ab urbe condita).
I’m wondering how often (if ever) it was actually called year 1220 Ab urbe condita, given that I’ve never heard of the more common Year of the Consulship of Pusaeus and Iohannes.
This was interesting:
Emperor Skandagupta, ruler of the Gupta Empire, dies after a 12-year reign, as Huns consolidate their conquests in western India. He is succeeded by his half-brother Purugupta.
…if only because the current Gupta Empire also hit a bit of a rocky patch yesterday:
They were the ones who (ugh… “allegedly”) benefitted to the tune of billions and billions of Rands after their State Capture of South Africa.
Ancient Hillforts in Britain are re-fortified
They were looking a bit shabby.
King Genseric extends his pirate raids in the Mediterranean Sea; the Vandals sack and enslave the people living in Illyricum, the Peloponnese and other parts of Greece.
Happy 457 days. Happy 467 day.
