# Direc­tory tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/greekdates

The package provides easy access to ancient greek names of days and months
of various regions of Greece. In case the hostorical information about a
region is not complete, we use the Athenian name of the month. Moreover
commands and options are provided, in order to completely switch to the
"ancient way", commands such as \today.

In the meanwhile (since 2001) I have found, through more history research,
that the way \today should be structured must be a bit different. I will
fix this in a later release.

The package prefers to be useful (say to Greek Gentiles) than to be
historically accurate (for example a 13th month used in the ancient
calendar is not implemented here as it would not be useful). However,
even historians who are not gentiles may find interesting the information
presented in the package.
