A common year starting on Sunday is any non-leap year (i.e. a year with 365 days) that begins on Sunday, 1 January, and ends on Sunday, 31 December. Its dominical letter hence is A. The most recent year of such kind was 2006 and the next one will be 2017 in the Gregorian calendar[2] or, likewise, 2007 and 2018 in the obsolete Julian calendar.

The final two digits of Julian years repeat after 700 years, i.e. 25 cycles. When starting to count in 2001 for instance, every 1st, 7th and 18th year (equivalent to #17, #23 and #06 in the table) of these Julian cycles is a common year that starts on a Sunday, i.e. ca. 10.71 % of all years. They are always 6 or 11 years apart.
