From 366 BCE until the last centurt BCE the Roman constitution was stable in the form of an aristocratic republic with three basic elements : magistrates, Senate and people(177), but the whole republic was essentially dominated by few important families still shaped in a clanic framework(178).
As we saw, with the conquest of Alexandria on August 1, 30 BCE the Ptolemaic kingdom fell to the vitorious Augustus who took over the country as a successor of the previous Monarchy, so that upon the new Roman ruler the same honours were bestowed as upon his Egyptian and Greek predecessors(276).

As they settled in Bactria from around 125 BCE, the Yuezhi became Hellenized to some degree, as suggested by their adoption of the Greek alphabet and by some remaining coins, minted in the style of the Greco-Bactrian kings, with the text in Greek.

The indications are that these two main branches of Celts began to diverge in the 2nd millenium BC or earlier.
In my view, a divergence date of prior to the second millenium BCE is not only within the realm of possibility, it is a probability.
However, unlike other cultures who "borrowed" from the Phoenicians, the religion of the Celts prohibited open use of written language to record their "sacred wisdom." Thus, sacred knowledge was indeed recorded, but was carefully shielded from exposure outside of the sacred schools of wisdom.

This essay aims at illustrating this point by re-examining the evolution of Babylonian astrology in the 1st Millenium BCE in a broad sweep covering various superficially unrelated types of data.
In the 2nd and early 1st Millenium BCE Babylonian Astrology was based on the concept of dynamic divine intervention: celestial events like eclipses or planetary conjunctions were considered interpretable signs from the gods indicating that a more or less specific event would inevitably take place on earth in the near future.

What Matfeld tries to do is to create a kind of historical-geographical scenario that in together points towards a later date that, say 1000 BCE.
Individual entries in the scenario might be so-to-speak an e silentio argument, but in together they creates this kind of scenario that is something else and forces upon the scholar the issue: Did he start with the right question, assuming the Bible to be historically correct on this and going back to this early period?

The needles most commonly used in present-day practice are made of stainless steel and are of approximately the same diameter as a medium thickness guitar string (from approximately.01" to.02").
In China, the practice of acupuncture can be traced as far back as the 1st millenium BCE, and archeological evidence has been identified with the period of the Han dynasty (from 202 BCE to 220 CE).
The practice spread centuries ago into many parts of Asia; in modern times it is a component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), and forms of it are also described in the literature of the traditional medicine of India.

The king occupied and destroyed the Temple at Jerusalem, killing the men, selling the women and children into slavery, forbidding the observance of Jewish laws, such as Sabbath and circumcision, and settling in the area of the Temple Mount a community of loyal population including Jews.
The year 166 BCE was crucial: at Modiin, in the Judean Hills, Mattathias and his 5 sons, John, Simeon, Judas, Eleazar and Jonathan called the "Maccabees" or the "Hasmoneans", refused to obey the King’s officer sent to Modiin in order to insist upon the presentation of the sacrifice.

This means that the original spellings of the words were standardized during Proto-Germanic times, and due to the conservative nature of the writing system, the original forms of the words were preserved even after their pronuncations had changed over time.

As to when the game of Go first came into being, most histories of the game will tell you that it has been around for three or four thousand years, whereas in fact there is no concrete evidence for the existence of Go before about two thousand years ago.
The only evidence for the game in sources dating from the 1st millenium BCE is the occasional use of the word yì 弈 "to play Go", as in this famous saying by Confucius :
