Please feel free to call me your excellency, or Ron if you like? LOL
But, think of the "great physician", or Jesus, or?
As to 585 BCE, I reject the dating! It is, in my humble opinion, and with the grace of Charles, just an artifically created time period that merely restates actions which happened much later in time, possibly in the Dark or Early Middle ages?
