zies Lune = dies Lunae in Moesia - 5th century AD

The following deals with the evolution of the Latin term diēs = "day" in the Eastern Balkan Romance (EBR) languages. If you look at the table below, you will notice that the 'change' di > dz (> z) appears only in the EBR languages.

When might have the EBR speakers begin to pronounce the the classic Latin term diēs with dz / z?

In a Latin inscription of the 5th century AD from Moesia (found in the present-day village of Stan in Bulgaria), the Latin term diēs appears twice as ziēs.
