I should clarify one thing, however. Even though version of Theophilus of the kinglist of Dynasty 18 is more correct than that of Josephus in some respects, he did not understand that there were some coregencies involved. He changed the text to say "after him" much of the time--and that does not reflect the copy of Josephus. But then Theophilus lived later than Josephus in the Second Century CE.

And yet it cannot be denied that his "Ramesses Miammun" is more correct than the "Harmesses Miamun" of Josephus. The coregency summary in the early part of Dynasty 18 is more accurate than that of Josephus. In fact, it is very accurate. Theophilus also gives a count for "Sethos, also called Ramesses" while Josephus gives no years.

The authority whom Africanus followed only rounds off the years of the reigns, but wisely avoids even a "then" much less an "after him". Same for Eusebius.
