 Yet Another Eclipse for Herod
The best answer seems to be Martin's: Herod's sons reckoned their reigns from the beginning of his son Antipater's regency with him about 4 B.C., which began either when Antipater was named heir to the throne or later at the death of Herod's two royal sons.

The principal conclusion is that Herod died in early A.D. 1 because the December 29, 1 B.C. eclipse was the most likely to have been widely observed, and all of the historical evidence can be explained by the one simple hypothesis that Josephus was not aware that Herod's successors had antedated their reigns.
