Paoni (Coptic: Ⲡⲁⲱⲛⲓ, Paōni), also known as Payni (Greek: Παϋνί, Paüní) and Ba'unah[1] (Arabic: بئونه‎‎, Ba'una), is the tenth month of the Egyptian and Coptic calendars. It lasts between June 8 and July 7 of the Gregorian calendar. Paoni is also the second month of the Season of Shemu (Harvest) in Ancient Egypt, where the Egyptians harvest their crops throughout the land.

Name[edit]

The name "Paoni" derives from its original Egyptian name "Month of the Valley Festival" (Egyptian: pꜣ n in.t) in reference to an annual celebration of Thebes.
