The Iovist Calendar is the primary calendar used in most of Iovist Ekuosia. Its point of origin is the supposed date of birth of the Prophet Iovi, making the current year 3211. It is a solar calendar with 365 days in each year apart from leap years, in which there are 366 days. This makes for an average of 365.25 days per year, slightly shorter than Sahar's 365.2563-day solar year. Consequently, the calendar has drifted by roughly one day every 200 years relative to the solar and Gregorian calendars; while the addition of extra leap days has been proposed as a means to compensate, this has not been officially adopted by any government or institution.

Months

Each year consisting of thirteen months split into 28 days; these are in turn divided into four seven-day weeks. The final day of each year is a special day without a month or day of the week, which marks the end of the old year and beginning of the new, though it is still counted as part of the previous year. Every leap year there is another special day of the year called the Day of the Spirits, which falls between Bifkines and Firiden and also has no day of the week.
