Here, once again, is the math of Eusebius.

According to Eusebius, there are 2044 years from the birth of Abraham to the 15th year of Tiberias Caesar [which is 29 CE].

Abraham born in 2015 BCE.

According to Eusebius, there are 505 years between Abraham and Moses. That amounts to 1510 BCE, which falls in the reign of Thutmose I by the High Chronology.

Therefore, between the 75th year of Abraham [when he received a promise from the Almighty] and Moses, there are 430 years. It still amounts to 1510 BCE.

This was when Manetho believed an exodus occurred under "Tethmosis" [Cenephres] and the Speos Artemidos inscription of Hatshepsut seems to confirm it. However, Manetho said nothing about Moses at that time. Eusebius does not believe Moses led an exodus in 1510 BCE but left Egypt at a young age. Syncellus understood Moses was young at the time, which he writes as a commentary.

Pseudo-Dionysius followed the same math as Eusebius. He gave the year 490 as being the year of an Exodus, sixty years after the year 430. That is 1450 BCE. "Cencheres" [Aakheperure Amenhotep II] was king then. Eusebius has Cencheres reigning for 16 years but the Book of Sothis assigns him 26--which is correct.

I hope this is clear. Whether all this is the real truth, no one knows--but that is the math of Eusebius.

    And see Pietersma's book on page 8 as to when Palmanothes and Cenephres were placed. They were Amenhotep I and Thutmose I.... more
