Mystery Date Question

I have had a query trying to find the meaning of E. M. in this transcription from a headstone -

Born Feb. 9, E. M. 344
Died May 18, E. M. 408

It seems that the person was born in 1844 and died in 1908 which means the E. M. = 1500
However, the question is what do the letters stand for??
I would appreciate any suggestions. Please email Jim McKane
