The Macedonian calendar was the most widespread among the luni?solar Greek calendars, because Alexander the Great imposed the Macedonian Calendar on his conquests. As a result, it reached a number of big cities in Asia and Egypt as well and managed to survive among the local calendars for centuries after Alexander. Due to the intermeddling with the local calendars, the month correspondence has not been accurate in the use of the calendar outside Macedonia. In our paper we give the month correspondence of the Macedonian calendar with Egyptian and Babylonian ones and its course in the pass of the centuries.
