 Assyrian Church of the East - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A native of China was elected Patriarch as Yaballaha III in 1281, and his colleague Rabban Bar Sauma journeyed as far west as Gascony.
This situation lasted until 1662 when the Patriarch in Diyarbakir, Mar Shimun XIII Denha, broke communion with Rome, resumed relations with the line at Alqosh, and moved his seat to the village of Qochanis in the Turkish mountains.
While this removes the underlying dispute, the rift between the rival Patriarchs still exists, with Mar Addai as the successor to Mar Thomas Darmo at the head of a group called the Ancient Church of the East.

 The antediluvian patriarchs and the Sumerian King List
It is suggested that the Sumerian scribe that composed the original antediluvian list had available a document (possibly a clay tablet) containing numerical information on the ages of eight of the patriarchs similar to that of the Genesis record and that he mistakenly interpreted it as being written in the sexagesimal system.
The Sumerian list assigns an average reign duration of 30,150 years, with a total duration for the period of 241,200 years, compared to an average age of the biblical patriarchs of 858 years and a sum of 8575 years for their full lives.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Patriarch and Patriarchate
In 1781 Ignatius Giarve, Jacobite Bishop of Aleppo, was elected canonically Patriarch of Antioch.
On the other hand, the existence of several Catholic patriarchs of the same see, for instance, the Melchite, Jacobite, Maronite, and Latin titulars of Antioch, is a concession to the national feeling of Eastern Christians, or, in the case of the Latin, a relic of the crusades that archæologically can hardly be justified.
The pope as Patriarch of the West (this is the commonest form; "Patriarch of Rome", or "Latin Patriarch" also occur) rules all Western Europe from Poland to Illyricum (the Balkan Peninsula), Africa west of Egypt, all other lands (America, Australia) colonized from these lands and all Western (Latin) missionaries and dwellers in the East.

For example, Mar Shimun Bar Sabbai; served on the Patriarchal See; according to the Book of Marganitha, from the year 320—330, according to Amro, from 326-344, according to Patros, from 328-339, according to Tupankchi, from 323—341, according to Wigram, 328—340, according to Shamasha Gewargis Malik, unil 341, according to the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Chronology, 332—339.
This is especially true of Babylon, namely, the twin cities of Seleucia-Ctesiphon, and the Persian Empire as a whole.
True, for several centuries, the theory that Mar Patros speaks metaphorically of Babylon when he actually means Rome, has been held by Christians in the West, and has also permeated in various forms among most of the eastern Churches, yet the fact is that this theory is not supported by any historical evidence whatsoever.

 Romance of Bible Chronology -  Rev. Martin Anstey | Preterist Bibliography
As there is no precedent in ante-diluvian times for placing the age of the Patriarchs at the birth of their sons so low as from 30 to 35 years, it seems probable that the Hebrew Text gives the true ages of the post-diluvian Patriarchs, as in fact they were.
The two principal authorities for the Chronology of Egypt are the Turin Papyrus, a list of Kings compiled in the 19th dynasty, which is in a terrible state of dilapidation, and the list of Kings and dynasties compiled by Manetho.
