hundredth year from which it is named; as, the first
century ({a}. {d}. 1-100 inclusive); the seventh
century ({a}.{d}. 601-700); the eighteenth century
({a}.{d}. 1701-1800). With words or phrases connecting
it with some other system of chronology it is used of
similar division of those eras; as, the first century
of Rome (A.U.C. 1-100).
[1913 Webster]
