What does the C in this date mean?
I have to write a paper on the Temple of Portunus (ca. 1C BCE). What's the "C" after circa (ca.) 1 mean? (It's not in my lesson.)

That looks like the c for "circa": latin for "around" or "about". In other words not an exact date.
On second thought, I think that first young lady may be right. Century. Looks like they are using "ca." for "circa", and C for 100.

c is 100 in Roman Numerals
example MMC is 2100
CXI is 111

I think you'll find it means century.
1C means first century.
