Before the year of Pandora

The Salakian Empire measures time in terms of when the Sargon's human ancestors found the sunken continent of Pandora. I know "in the year of Pandora" translates into anno Pandora (abbr. AP) because of anno Domini. How would I say "before the year of Pandora," though?

In the year of Pandora would be anno Pandorae. (assuming you want Pandora to be 1st declension)

"before the year of Pandora" would be "ante annum Pandorae".
