Per PippoM: relativamente all'ora io ci leggo: "hora 2 (il 2 non è sicurisimo) cum quatrante a.m.", in pratica le 2 e un quarto del mattino. E' anche vero, però, che bisogna considerare il periodo e la zona in quanto per molto tempo è stata in vigore l'ora italica (mi sembra si chiami così) che faceva partire il nuovo giorno dal tramonto, quindi l'ora variava nel corso dell'anno al variare della lunghezza del giorno. Questo, ovviamente, solo per fare quattro chiacchiere visto che sapere l'ora esatta in cui è nato un antenato non è che ci cambi di molto la vita :wink:

Thanks for the info, although I can't understand what Lucap wrote. Leoluca is a male, correct?

Luca explained the way time of day was expressed, and it was something I'd never heard.
Yes, Leoluca is a male!
