Everyone had read somewhere, for example, that the Romans had originally misunderstood Caesar’s rule that a day should be intercalated in every fourth year because they counted inclusively, and added the day in every third year—an error that Augustus eventually corrected. But Glareanus used an exceptionally recondite source, the scholia on a Hellenistic poet of legendary obscurity, to confirm his argument that the Olympic cycle lasted four years only: “Lycophron[i] interpres quingentesimo quoque mense olympica celebrari scripsit et quinto die ludis olympiacis finem imponunt” [The commentator on Lycophron wrote that the Olympic games were celebrated in every fiftieth month, and they end the Olympic games on the fifth day].
