The Julian calendar was not introduced in the year 45 AD.  It was introduced in
the year 45 BC.  In 45 AD, Julius Caesar had been dead for decades.  Nero was
born in 37 AD, not BC, contrary to point (2) in comment #0, but I didn't catch
that when I wrote comment #2 -- I was pointing out a separate error.
