From the manual:

AVC actually means AUC, which is a Roman term meaning "Years since the Founding", it shows as AVC because that's how the Romans wrote their U's. This date system is used so you don't have to count backward to know what years are coming up, as you would have to with the BC/BCE system.

You know, we're going to see this question a thousand times. Let's move this to the FAQ forum.

And modify the title a bit.

EDIT: FmrPFCBob submitted this helpful link that gives a timeline of Roman history in AVC. Be sure to thank him for finding such a useful tidbit of information. :cool:
