While working on the first chunk of Eusebius, I saw a list of kings in Babylon. There was quite a different between the lengths of the reigns in the German edition (Karst, 1911) and the Latin one (Petermann, 1870-ish). The former was based on a photographic copy of E, the main manuscript; the latter on two hand-written copies of it in Venice. If the numbers could vary that much in one generation, there must be real questions about all of the numerals.
