Boethus of Sidon (Greek) follower of Adronicus of Rhodes (Greek) or Boethus of Alexandria (Jewish) and follower of Antigonus of Sokho (Jewish, don't ask me where Sokho is)? Or a later Roman Boethus or an even later British Boethus?
And yes Fomenko's theory is that British and to a certain extent Russian history is just a repeat of Constantinople history. He's a mathematician and he states that the parallels are too numerous to be statistically possible (as independent entities). I suspect he's on to something there but I found his whole theory (which has Israelites in it, as a good conspiracy theory should) to be just as statistically impossible. But British history, as we currently know it, is rubbish.
There are other interesting theories about Charlemagne and 325 years of European Dark Ages being completely made up. That one might sound crazy but have you had a good look at Charlemagne?
What do I think? I don't think there's 2494 years between now and the battle at Salamis.
