Parmouti (Coptic: Ⲡⲁⲣⲙⲟⲩⲧⲉ, Parmoute), also known as Pharmouthi (Greek: Φαρμουθί, Pharmouthí) and Barmudah[1] (برموده), is the eighth month of the ancient Egyptian and Coptic calendars. It lasts between April 9 and May 8 of the Gregorian calendar. Paremoude was also the fourth month of the Season of the Emergence, when the Nile floods recede and the crops start to grow throughout the land.

Name[edit]

The Coptic name Paremoude derives from the Egyptian Renenutet.
