I'm interested in knowing more about the history around lunar tables and calculation of moon phases.
When did we have first (reliable) calculations of moon phases and first (reliable) lunar tables? When did they become widespread?
Reading through History of astronomy (Wiki), it appears that we've had some calculations 200-100 BC at least (Greece), but maybe even earlier (the Maya).
Edit To explain a bit better: I'm trying to find an answer to the question: At which point in history, were we able to tell the exact day on which moon phases will occur, for the next 2 months (for example)? Reliable meaning that most of the time (let's say 90%) the predictions were correct.
