Historical Studies (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Historical Studies As the Egyptian kalendar ignored the fractional day beyond 365, it follows that in relation to the stars it retrograded '2 5636 of a day (or the fraction over 36 5 in the sidereal year) in each year, so that it agreed with the position of sun and stars after 1425 years, the first element named above. It retrograded in relation to the seasons '24224 of a day (or the fraction over 365 in the tropical year) in each year, so that the kalendar agreed with the seasons after 1508 years, the second element named above.
