82.170.121.166

I saw that year 17 ended up at the end of year 16, which is irritating, so I correct this here:

Era Horemheb hry-k3mw hry-b'h Date BC Equation
1376 BC = 1 Akhetaten = 1 Akenkheres I (12 years)
1 1 ? 1365/4 BC = 12 Akhenaten = 1 Rathos (6 years) = 1 Akhenaten & Meritaten (5 years) = 393 years after the Exodus (in 1758/7 BC!) according to Josephus
2 2 ? 1364 BC = 13 Akhenaten = 2 Meritaten
3 ? 14 1363 BC = 14 Akhenaten = 3 Meritaten
4 4 15 1362 BC = 15 Akhenaten = 4 Meritaten
5 5 16 1361 BC = 16 Akhenaten = 5 Meritaten
6 6 17 = 1 1360 BC = 17 Akhenaten = 1 Neferneferuaten-Meritaten (10 years) & Smenkhkare (2-3 years?) = 1 Rathotis & Akhenkheres II (9 & 12 years)
7 7 2 1359 BC = 2 Neferneferuaten
8 8 ? 1358 BC = 3 Neferneferuaten
9 9 ? 1357 BC = 4 Neferneferuaten
10 10 ? 1356 BC = 5 Neferneferuaten
11 11 ? 1355 BC = 6 Neferneferuaten
12 12 ? 1354 BC = 7 Neferneferuaten
13 13 ? 1353 BC = 8 Neferneferuaten
14 ? ? 1352 BC = 9 Neferneferuaten
15 15 10 1351 BC = 10 Neferneferuaten
16 16 ? 1350 BC = 11 Neferneferuaten-Meritaten (& Smenkhkare) = 1 Akenkheres III = 1 Tutankhamun (12 years), wine-jar from Tutankhamun's tomb gives overseer's title hry-k3mw but no year dates.
17 ? ? 1349 BC = 12 Neferneferuaten = 2 Tutankhamun, royal court abandons Akhetaten
18 ? - 1348 BC = 3 Tutankhamun. The title hry-b'h does not seem to continue.
19 ? 1347 BC = 4 Tutankhamun
20 ? 1346 BC = 5 Tutankhamun
21 ? 1345 BC = 6 Tutankhamun
22 ? 1344 BC = 7 Tutankhamun
23 ? 1343 BC = 8 Tutankhamun
24 ? 1342 BC = 9 Tutankhamun
25 ? 1341 BC = 10 Tutankhamun
26 ? 1340 BC = 11 Tutankhamun
27 ? 1339 BC = 12 Tutrankhamun = 1 Ay (4/5 years) = 1 Harmais (4/5 years)
28 28 1338 BC = 2 Ay
29 ? 1337 BC = 3 Ay
30 30 1336 BC = 4 Ay; last stray year date at Akhetaten, last people abandon Akhetaten
31 - 1335 BC = 5 Ay = 1 Harmesses = 1 Horemheb (destroys Akhetaten) The title hry-k3mw doesn't seem to continue, but the numbering apparently continued under the name of Horemheb. Acceded: I Shemu 9, Full Moon, 28 March 1335 BC (reigning perhaps 16 or 19 years 9 months 16 days?)
32 1334 BC = 2 Horemheb.
...
47 1319/8 BC = 17 Horemheb? (28 March 1319-8 BC) = 1 Ramesses I?; II Peret 20 = No Moon, 4 January 1318 BC (reigning perhaps 5 years 5 months 2 days?)
...
50 1316/5 BC = 20 Horemheb? (23 March 1316-5 BC) = 1 Ramesses I?; II Peret 20 = First Visible, 3 January 1315 BC (reigning perhaps 2 years 5 months 2 days?)
...
52 1314/3 BC, lunar date: No Moon in Year 52, No Moon, II Peret 27 = 13 January 1313 BC; 1 Seti I, III Shemu 24 = No Moon, 5 June 1313 BC! reigning: 8 years 3 days thus into his 9th year?). Compare Manetho's 51 years (= Year 52) for Sethos (I) as per Africanus.
...
56 1310/9 BC Compare Manetho's 55 years (= Year 56) for Sethos (I) as per Eusebius.
...
59 1307/6 BC, Death of Neshy, Mes inscription, end of era Sethos (end of reign of Seti I).
60 1306/5 BC = 1 Ramesses II (III Shemu 27, No Moon, 6 June 1305 BC!) = 9 Seti I. Compare Manetho's 59 years (=Year 60) for Sethos (= Seti I) = Harmesses (= Horemheb) = Aegyptos = Ramesses (= Ramesses I), brother of Danaus = Harmais (= Ay), followed by Rampses (= Ramesses II) for 66 years (= Year 67) as per Josephus.
...
69 1297/6 BC = 10 Ramesses II, end of era Harmesses/Horemheb/Aegyptos/Sethos for 68 years (= Year 69)
1289/8 BC = 18 Ramesses II, Mes inscription (or the date of the second judgement)
...
1240/39 BC = 66/67 Ramesses II = 518 years after the Exodus (in 1758/7 BC!) according to Josephus, while Manetho according to Africanus says of the 32 Dynasty 16 Shepherd Kings to have reigned for 518 years (until when? Perhaps indeed meant to be a total from 1758/7 to 1240/39 BC, thus designating the Early 19th Dynasty kings the descendants of the Hyksos, whether true or not), which Josephus elsewhere lowers by 7 years to 511 years (Thus redating the Exodus to 1751/0 BC)!
1239/8 BC = 1 Merenptah

Ian

    Hi Tory, Just analizing. If I forget for a moment the single Year 1 of Smenkhkare, which is difficult to place with any certainty anyway, I come accross the following lunar based chronology: 1376/5... more
