1 543–542 BCE
543 1 BCE – 1 CE 0–1 CE
544 1–2 CE 1–2 CE

A lunisolar calendar is a lunar calendar that compensates by adding an extra month as needed to realign the months with the seasons. Prominent examples of lunisolar calendar are Hindu calendar and Buddhist calendar that are popular in South Asia and Southeast Asia. Another example is the Hebrew calendar, which uses a 19-year cycle.



this also means that CyberPunk 2077 BE would be in 1534 AD
