The 260-day sacred or ritual calendar (Tzolkin) and the 365-day solar calendario (Haab), are combined to form a 52-year cycle called Long Count or Calendar Round. This long count records the days beginning on an “era” date that the mayas established as day 4 ahaw of the month 8 cumkú; its notation system corresponds to 13.0.0.0.0, which is equivalent, according to the generally accepted correlation, to August 13, 3114 BC. That day a 5,125 year cycle was completed, previous to the one we’re living in currently.
