The Year of the Second Consulship of Octavian and Agrippa (or, less frequently, year 727 Ab urbe condita) was a common year starting on Sunday [link will display the full calendar] of the Julian calendar. Since the early medieval period, when the Anno Domini calendar era became the prevalent method in Europe for naming years, the year has been commonly known as 27 BC.
