AC/DC

While researching Portuguese national hero Viriatus (I’ll post about him later… Ooh, nice teaser, eh?) I noticed the Wikipedia entry gave a date as 147 aC. That prompted me to wonder whether it meant AD or BC. 

BC, apparently. It’s short for antes de Cristo. And its now 2017 dC (depois de Cristo).
