Dendrochronology Since the 1627 BCE irregular tree ring signature for bristlecone pine comes from a living chronology, it may correlate to the dominate T cycle of a 1620 BCE signature sync.
The irregular tree ring signatures between bristlecone pine at 1627 BCE and the sync of 1626 BCE in the Irish bog are actually 91 years apart so that by natural extension the sequence constructs between the end of GB2 and Teeshan that begins at 13 BCE are incorrect in sync.

In this way, he shows how different viewpoints on historical events can emerge and how skepticism might be required when people in power describe their accomplishments and motives.

Euthydemus was allegedly a native of Magnesia and possible Satrap of Sogdiana, who overturned the dynasty of Diodotus of Bactria and became a Greco-Bactrian king in about 230 BCE according to Polybius.
Little is known of his reign until 208 BCE when he was attacked by Antiochus III the Great, whom he tried in vain to resist on the shores of the river Arius, the modern Herirud.
The death of Euthydemos has been roughly estimated to 200 BCE-195 BCE, and the last years of his reign probably saw the beginning of the Bactrian invasion of India.
