 529 BC DATING - 5 ECLIPSES
The 541 B.C. eclipses which have an interval of only 2:45 minutes, however, suggest that their offset standard was just one half hour.

Some historians object to the date 455 BC as the 20th year of Artaxerxes reign, placing it by traditional received knowledge ten years later at 445 BC.
The 400 years of Genesis 15:13 and Acts 7:6-7 refer to a period starting at 1914 BC when the 30 year old Isaac was afflicted with the distress of preparing mentally to be sacrificially killed and ended 400 years later at the time of the Exodus from Egypt in 1514 BC (see chart 2b).
A second line of evidence is available adding weight in confirming the 390 year period from the tribal split in 998 BC to the siege at the time of Jehoiakim and Jehoiachin by Nebuchadnezzar in 608 BC and the start of the 70 years exile.

 Artaxerxes’ 20th year — 455 BC?
This information suffices to identify the date of the text as 454 B.C. As this was the 11th year of Artaxerxes, the preceding year, 455 BC, cannot have been his 20th year as the Watch Tower Society claims, but his 10th year.
The Society’s dating of Artaxerxes’ 20th year to 455 BC is demonstrably wrong.
If Artaxerxes’ 20th year was 445/44 instead of 455, it is still possible to start from that year, provided that we use a "prophetical year" of 360 days instead of the solar year of 365,2422 days.

 Homer, study suggestions
the Homeric tradition was carried on brilliantly in classical Greek tragedy of the 5th century BC, where the one-man show of the bard gave way to performances embellished by multiple actors and elaborate staging.
Sophocles (496-406 BC?) wrote more than 120 plays over a long career, but again only seven have survived including the famous Theban plays of Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus and Antigone.
The best surviving example is The Argonautica, or voyage of the Argo, composed about 250 BC by Apollonius of Rhodes, the story of Jason, Medea and the quest for the Golden Fleece.

Euripides first competed in the famous Athenian dramatic festival (the Dionysia) in 455 BCE, one year after the death of Aeschylus.
