Need Help Deciphering Latin Date

Postby sacesta » 08 Apr 2016, 00:28

I'm having difficulty reading the date on this Record of Baptism for my great grandfather, Benedetto Aceste.

The year is obvious and the month looks to be Martii (March) but I cannot even guess at the day.

Can someone help me?

Thanks.

Thanks again! I googled Latin numbers and came up with something similar, but what I found must be a variation of the Latin used in this record and that threw me.

Here's a link to an August record from a church in another town where the first part of the number 26 is abbreviated
