Translation from Latin

  • Can you tell me the translation of:

    Dat. -- -- -- infra oct. Martini.

    I don't know if Martini refers to a person or a saint's day, there is no indication in the passage before the date.

  • Hello Chris,

    I guess there is a misspelling instead of "oct. Martii" = March, 8. The writer may have had in mind St. Martini-Day (November, 11).

    Kind regards

  • Hello Chris,

    "oct" may be an abbreviation of "Octave". In this case "infra oct. Martini" would be a date between the 11th and 19th November.
