@M.Angel
If one got married in BC 1, using your formula, the third anniversary will be
-1 + 3 = 2 AD.
But this is wrong since your formula assumeS Year 0 exists.
You can review the following sequence to see which year is right.
1BC (married) -> 1AD (1st anniversary) -> 2AD (2nd anniversary) -> 3AD (3rd anniversary)
The correct formula is
-1 + 1 + 3 = 3 AD

Sorry, but year 0 don't exist.

 

-490+2500 = 2010 AD and -387+2400 = 2013 AD

 

The dates are all correct.

BTW, the 2010 Marathon 2500 anniversary coin was issued one year earlier as well.

490 BC + 1 + 2500 = 2011 AD

Plato's academy was founded at B.C. 387, so its 2400 year anniversary should be 2014, not 2013.

Almost everyone outside the history society makes this mistake. There is no Year A.D. 0 between Year A.D. 1 and Year B.C. 1, hence -387 + 1 + 2400 = 2014.

But I am totally ok to have the nice motif on the coin one year earlier. :-)
