Pi Kogi Enavot (Coptic: Ⲡⲓⲕⲟⲩϫⲓ 'ⲛ'ⲁⲃⲟⲧ[pronunciation?]; literally the little month), also known as El Nasii, is the thirteenth and last month of the Coptic calendar. It lies between September 6 and September 10 of the Gregorian calendar. That month is also incorporated in the Season of 'Shemu' (Harvest) in Ancient Egypt, where the Egyptians harvest their crops throughout the land of Egypt. Of the Ancient or Emergence, Harvest, and Inundation calendar, Pi Kogi Enavot lies within mid-July at the end of the year before the new year or Emergence year starts a few days later in the second part of July.
