 3000bc
BP (6000-4000 BC) at which time the temperature is warming culminating in an era warmer than present, when equatorial weather patterns may have reached farther north than at present, and the westerly storms of the north would have been confined to latitudes higher than at present.
At about 3500 BC the lower Tigris and Euphrates alluvial plain was under extreme pressure from both rapidly rising sea and buildup of the Karun delta.
The 3199 BC value is associated with an acidity peak in Camp Century ice cores dated at 3150 B,c demonstrating unquestionably that adverse weather conditions, probably due either to volcanic eruption or meteoric impact, occurred at this time.

This is just over 100 years earlier than the date of 1333 BC that we would expect on the basis of her own/Massey's figures.
Taking the position of the equinox in 2410 BC as the boundary between Taurus and Aries (as Blavatsky does) may well be one of the best ways of fitting an artificial zodiac of 12 equal constellations to the actual zodiac.
In the fifth century BC Herodotus was told by the Egyptian priests that during the past 341 generations, the sun had twice risen where it now sets and twice set where it now rises.

 An Interdisciplinary Timeline
The late-Triassic crisis is notorious as one of the five biggest extinction events in the fossil record, wiping out the dominant reptiles of the time and spurring the rise of a hitherto minor group called dinosaurs, which went on to dominate Earth for 150 million years.
The earth's equator was once a glacial winter wonderland 600-700 million years ago, possibly due to a significant increase in the earth's tilt, at the time, by as much as 50 degrees relative to its spin axis (current tilt is 23.5 degrees).
There's a huge amount of diversity in the environment at this time, suggesting that eukaryotes were rapidly evolving in the face of some new ecological pressure, and one candidate is the appearance of the earliest animals.

 Fall of the Sothic theory: Egyptian chronology revisited
BC as being a ‘total certainty’ (‘volliger Sicherheit’) for Egypt’s—and indeed the world’s—first mathematically fixed date.
Composite images of the Temple at Luxor showing the avenue of the sphinxes, and an x-ray image of Sirius B (which is stronger in the x-ray wavelengths than its companion star Sirius A—Sothis).
BC, it was not difficult for chronologists to determine when this supposed ‘Era of Menophres’ occurred.

 The Star Sothis and Egyptian Chronology
In brief, the Mesopotamian evidence indicated to Rowton that 1356 BC was the accession date of a certain Assyrian king, viz.
Though Rowton had arrived at a possible date of 1356 BC for the accession of Ashur-uballit, he regarded it as "probable" - basing himself on Weidner and Smith's view that, before Tiglath-pileser I (c.1100 BC), the Assyrians used a lunar-year of 354 days (58) - that it was even as late as 1349 BC.
Engraved as it was on a slab of stone, this decree had been promulgated by a synod of Egyptian priests representing all Egypt and meeting at the temple of the "gods Euergetai" at Canopus (on the western, or 'Canopic' mouth of the Nile Delta).

The Egyptian year began with the rising of the star Sirius, but, as their civil year contained exactly 365 days, the Egyptians were compelled to use the so-called Sothic cycle, a period of about 1460 years from one time to the next, when the civil year coincided with the astronomical one.
In Roman chronology the era of the founding of the city (ab urbe condita, or AUC) dates from April 22, 753 bc, and the Julian era dates from the reform of the calendar by Julius Caesar in 45 bc.
For example, by reckoning backward, the time and place may be fixed for the occurrence of a remarkable eclipse, such as the eclipse reported by the Greek scientist Thales as causing the suspension of a battle between the Medes and the Persians.

eclipse : [585 bc] the eclipse that caused a suspension of the battle between the Medes and Persians.
Egyptian chronology : [4240 bc, vel 2780 bc] time based on the Sothic cycle of about 1,460 years, which began and ended at each reconciliation of the civil year with the astronomical year.
Epicharmus was born on the island of Cos, and became a protégé of Simonides of Ceos, or Simonides of Syracuse (556-469 vel 467 bc).

 Time Analogy
The era of the Olympiads of the Greeks was reckoned from July 1, 776 BC, and Greek astronomers introduced the Metonic cycle of 235 lunations (almost exactly 19 years) and also the Callippic cycle of 940 lunations (closer to 76 years).
The Muslim era dates from the Hegira, July 16, AD 622, but because the Muslim calendar is based on lunar months and is of variable length, the reconciliation of its dates with those of the Gregorian calendar is very complicated.
The French classical scholar Joseph Justus Scaliger proposed in 1583 that the epoch of the Julian era be fixed at January 1, 4713 BC, at noon.

 The Star Sothis and Egyptian Chronology
Not so reasonable, as it turns out, was Meyer's estimation of 4240 BC as the date for the sudden introduction of the calendar; or what O'Mara (2) has designated "Year 1" of the great Sothic cycle.
Of far greater concern to Sothic theorists than the apparent problem of refining Meyer's date of 2780 BC, however, must be the fact that some of the most renowned Egyptologists have by no means been able to agree on how to integrate this early, third millennium BC date into their respective chronological assessments.
(ii) Meyer's Later Era of 1320 BC Coming down the time-scale now to Meyer's third in sequence, major Sothic date of 1320 BC, which is customarily designated as the "Era of Menophres", we find that it too is heavily based on assumptions and is not lacking in its share of difficulties.

 Egyptian hieroglyph
Hieroglyphs are a system of writing used by the Ancient Egyptians, using a combination of logographic, syllabic, and alphabetic elements.
Hieroglyphs continued to be used under Persian rule (intermittent in the 6th and 5th centuries BC), after Alexander's conquest of Egypt, and during the ensuing Macedonian and Roman periods.
It appears that the complexity of late hieroglyphs came about, at least in part, as a response to the changed political situation.
