And sixteen Argive generations, if reckoned at 33 years each, with 18 years of a seventeenth, would go back from B.C. 1212, Ptolemy's date for Troy, (533 + 18 = ) 55 years to B.C. 1763 or 1764, so as to place the foundation of Argos only one or two years below his apparent date for the accession of Amosis, which he himself knew perfectly well to be 17 years higher than the true. And again, if one thought of the Hebrews as distinct from the Shepherds, and of the true date of the Exodus, then, though only 17 generations reduced to reigns of 24 years each, such as the Old Chronicle and Eratosthenes had used, would not go back from B.C. 1212 to B.C. 1654 the true date of the Exodus, Tatian, at the very time when he is quoting Ptolemy for the synchronism of the Exodus, Amosis, and Inachus, assigns as the number of Argive generations between Troy and Inachus not seventeen only, but twenty.

And Clement of Alexandria, who follows him, speaks of "tvienty or twenty-one generations, and 400 or more years" between Inachus and Troy, which clearly shows what sort of generations were intended. Tatian himself, after enumerating the generations, had continued thus: " So, if Moses was contemporary with Inachus, he was before Troy by four hundred years." Hence it is probable that Ptolemy also allowed more than seventeen, and even more than nineteen generations; that is, ...show more
