 The Kingship of the Assyrians 
 Beginning of the nation of the Hebrews 
 The Kingship of the Sicyonians 
 The Kingship of the Egyptians 
BC
 Ninus son of Belus was the first to reign over all Asia except for the Indies, for 52 years. In the 43rd year of the rule of this Ninus, Abraham was born.  In his reign Abraham is born among the Hebrews; when Abraham was 100 years old he fathered Isaac.  In Greece, however, Europs was the second to rule over the Sicyonians in Greece, for forty-five years. In the twenty-second year of his reign Abraham was born. 
 From here onwards was the 16th government among the Egyptians, which they call a dynasty, at which time the Thebans were ruling for 190 years. 
 43   a Ninus founded the city of Ninum in the land of the Assyrians, which the Hebrews call Nineveh.  b While Ninus is reigning among the Assyrians, in his final years Abraham is born. 1 22  e While Ninus was reigning among the Assyrians, Aegialeus, from whom Aegialea was named, which is now called the Peloponnesus, ruled first among the Sicyonians for 52 years. After whom the second was Europs, whose name was also used as a place name.  f While Ninus was reigning among the Assyrians, the Thebans rule over the Egyptians.
