Dear Friends,

Just to toss a bit more gasoline on this fire ...

Shakespeare was familiar with the unique Venetian calendar -- the
so-called "More Veneto," which was annotated in letters and documents as
MV.  He exploits the anomalies in this calendar in both Merchant and
Othello.  Indeed, both plays' titles are curiously alliterative with the
MV, i.e.
Merchant of Venice, and Othello, the Moor of Venice.
