  • Hello Max,


    you are right. For explanation:
    Latin: decem = English: (number) ten
    Latin: decembris = English (ordinal number) the tenth
    What you can read ist "Decb", that is the abbreveaion of "Decembris". Decembris was the tenth month of the former Julian calender which is the twelfth month of todays Gregorian calender.


    Kind regards
