Far too early Robert, Mittani was still in control of northern Syria. There were no Hittites, nor any Akhuwa/Huwe (Hivites), so far south until after the fall of Mitanni, and after the fall of the Hittite Empire.

If anyone chooses to identify a historical synchronism here, it can only be in the 19th Dyn., at the Late Bronze/Iron I transition.

    Here, I agree with Anonymous,---AND: "The Two Hornet's" timeline would fit well with Exodus in 2448, 1313CJ/BCE, (Jewish) + 131yrs = 1444BCE ('Actual') in the 35th Year of Thutmose III, just 14yrs... more
