About the Dates

Dates in Final Fantasy VII follow the traditional month/days scheme that we follow in the real world, however their method of naming years is slightly different. FF7 dates mark the [Era] as well as the year. Presumably, new Eras are started either every 2000 years, or every time a significant event comes to light.
At the beginning of the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII, the years are written as [ μ ] – εуλ XXXX, where [ μ ] signifies the era, and the numbers following εуλ show the year. When Genesis defects, the year is [ μ ] – εуλ 2000. However, later in that year, the year actually becomes [ v ] – εуλ 0000, signifying that the era has changed.

Verbally, [ μ ] is spoken as Mu, and [ v ] is spoken as Nu. So [ μ ] – εуλ 2000 is spoken as Mu Era 2000.
