The Hebrews "number the year according to the lunar course, so that amongst them the month has 29 and a half days. So since the solar cycle has 365 [days], but the lunar [cycle] has 354, the solar year exceeds the lunar year by 11 days. Consequently Greeks and Jews insert three intercalary months [in] eight [years]."[1]
Greek Original:
Ἐνιαυτός: οἱ Ἑβραῖοι τὸν ἐνιαυτὸν κατὰ τὸν σεληνιακὸν δρόμον ἀριθμοῦσιν, ὥστε τὸν μῆνα ἡμερῶν εἶναι παρ' αὐτοῖς κθ# ἥμισυ, ὡς τοῦ μὲν ἡλιακοῦ κύκλου ὑπάρχοντος τξε#, τοῦ δὲ σεληνιακοῦ τνδ#, ὡς τὸν ἡλιακὸν παραλλάσσειν ἐνιαυτὸν ἡμέρας ια# τοῦ σεληνιακοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ. ὥστε Ἕλληνες καὶ Ἰουδαῖοι μῆνας τρεῖς ἐμβολίμους ὀκτὼ παρεμβάλλουσιν.
