NONES

, in the Roman Calendar, the 5th day of the months January, February, April, June, August, September, November, and December; and the 7th of the other months March, May, July, and October: these last four months having 6 days before the Nones, and the others only four.—They had this name probably, because they were always 9 days inclusively, from the first of the Nones to the Ides, i. e. reckoning inclusively both those days.
