His total rule for Nebuchadnezzar 18 years 582-564 BC (Josephus)
(confusion later is eliminated by deleting one 19-year cycle of lunar
This is done by regarding these 19 years
as Nebuchadnezzar's years 25-43 instead of as 44-62.
In record should we expect to find tablets of 1 thru 19 of Evil-Marduk

362 orbits of Mars as 773 Julian years

776 BC and the scholastic 722 BC is 54 years all the way back to 1594
when Babylon fell.
