The die is cast


Today 2066 years ago, on 10th of January, 49 BC, Caesar crossed the Rubicon.

Of course, the point was that it was in the early days of January. Senate had refused his negotiations on 7th of January.
But... Due to his own neglect of his duties as Pontifex Maximus, the Year of Confusion, 46 BC, would last 15 months, 445 days.

So what was the day of Rubicon in proleptic calendar, Julian or Gregorian?

Obviously not 44 BC.
46 BC lasted 15 months totalling 445 days.
However, due to Caesarīs neglect of his duties as pontifex maximus, the 5 previous years - 51 to 47 BC - had been 12 months.
So when was 1st of January, 49 BC, in proleptic Julian calendar?
