Could de entonces be an abreviation of desde entonces - since then.

Hi gmb,

The dictionary entry for entonces has this example:

Las costumbres de entonces -> the customs of the time

So, apparently de entonces can mean "of the time" as in "of that era."

Cheers.

Could call on desde entonces meaning since then, but I haven't see it abreviated like that before, has anybody else? smile That would be interesting and the context would definitely need to be known!! wink

Good call webdunce. That's why I put the disclaimer of "depending on the context". smile

Depending on the context I believe you can translate it as "from then". I hope this helps. smile
