POSTSCRIPT.-The reader will observe, that in the colouring of the Tables the brown tint designates the settlements of the family of Ham, and the first, or Babylonian Empire; the pink, the family of Shem, and the second, or Persian Empire; the yellow, the family of Japheth, in Greece and Asia Minor, and the third, or Macedonian Empire; the blue, his descendants in Italy, and the fourth, or Roman Empire.
The only dates used in this work, are those of the years before Christ, according to the vulgar æra. In computing others, as the years of the world's age, of the Julian Period, of the Olympiads, and of the building of the city of Rome, the reader has only to attend to the following rules; to find the year of the world's age, subtract the given year before Christ, from
4004, the remainder will shew the year of the world's age. To find the year of the Julian Period, add 710 to the year of the world's age. To find the year of the Olympiads, subtract the given year before Christ, from 776, and divide by 4, the quotient will shew the Olympiad completed; the remainder, if any, the year of the current Olympiad. To find the year of the city of Rome, subtract the year before Christ from 753, the remainder will shew the age of the city of Rome.
