Usage notes[edit]

  • Originally a word of religious use, but given as a title to the emperor Augustus.
  • In Latin, the month names are used as adjectives. In the Classical period, this adjective modifies a noun identifying a particular day, from which the date was reckoned. In Medieval Latin and later periods, the adjective modifies a numeral for the day of the month.
