I want to engrave my ring with my wedding date in Latin. The date is June 8th, 2010. Can you translate this for me?
In classical mode this is rather complicated, but would be abbreviated to a.d. VI Id. Iun. A.D. MMX, literally short for 'the sixth day before the Ides of June in the Year of the Lord 2010'.
In more modern writings this might be more simply expressed VIII. IUN. MMX.
Take your pick!
