What Star said. Smiley

The Athenian New Year used the summer solstice to mark when the year would start. No longer practicing, I can't remember exactly what the details were, but I believe it would generally begin in June or July.

There really wasn't much emphasis placed on the solstices/equinox. Also, it helps to remember that the Athenian calendar literally had a holiday nearly every day. You had your biggies, but then you had days dedicated to certain deities/practices, and much of their calendar wasn't agrarian based.

Thank you all so much for the information. I had already tried looking up the answer to my own question, but I guess I didn't use the right keywords because I couldn't find anything.

Thank you Star for the sites, this will help me a lot.
