They were way ahead of the ancient Greeks and Romans who were using a lunar calendar with only 10 months and a total of 264 days. January and February didn’t exist and the year started in March. Julius Caesar asked an Egyptian astronomer to devise a better calendar. The result was the Julian calendar with 12 months of 30 or 31 days and the outlier February.
