Explicit mentions of the Azes era are now known from several inscriptions ranging in date from year 9 to year 136, (20) and inscriptions of years 156 and 157 are safely assigned to that era.
If we suppose instead that the Indian Yavana year started half a year before the beginning of the corresponding Yavana Macedonian year, it follows from 1 Azes = 47/6 BC (spring-based) that 1 Kaniska in the Indian calendar began in the last half of 301 Yavana (Macedonian).
If the epoch of the era of Azes was 47/6 BC = AE 201, this era was itself was the second centennial of the Arsacid era.
The era started in spring of 47 BC or autumn 48 BC, and is most likely the Azes era.
This date of Gorpiaios 172 is not intercalary (embolimos/yambulima) when based on an Azes era which is identical with the Vikrama samvat era.
Since the difference between the Azes and Yavana eras is known to be 128 years in spring-based calendars, and since the Yavana Macedonian year was behind the Yavana Indian year, the epoch of the era of the Yavanas has to move too and lands in BC 175/4, almost exactly as estimated by Cribb and errington on other grounds.
It is hardly coincidental that Kaniska's year 1 is now identical with year 301 in the Yavana era, and that year 1 of Azes is year 201 in the Arsacid era.
