What does CE mean?
Common Era (sometimes Current Era or Christian Era, abbreviated as CE, is an alternative designation for the calendar era originally introduced by Dionysius Exiguus in the 6th century, traditionally identified with Anno Domini (abbreviated AD).Dates before the year 1 CE are indicated by the usage of BCE, short for “Before the Common Era”. Neither designation uses a year zero, and the two designations are numerically equivalent; thus “2011 CE” corresponds to “AD 2011” and “99 BCE” corresponds to “399 BC”.
