The Egyptians also used a 365-day calendar year without any leap days similar to the Mayen Haab 365-day cycle.

Like the Haab, it has 360 days belonging to months followed by 5 extra days, but whereas the Haab has 18 months of 20 days, the Egyptian has 12 months of 30 days.

The Egyptian Calendar idea was taken up in the French Revolutionary calendar, but with a sixth extra day added to leap years.
