Dear Richard,

Does your comment above mean that you have reservations about the
recent(ish) datings of Kaniska and his dynasty by Nicholas Sims-Williams
and Joe Cribb?


author =        "Nicholas Sims-Williams and Joe Cribb",
  title =         "{A new Bactrian inscription of Kanishka the Great}",
  publisher =     "The Institute of Silk Road Studies",
  year =          "1995/96 {[1996]}",
  volume =        "4",
  journal =         "{Silk Road art and archaeology}",
  address =   "Kamakura",
  pages =          "75--142",
  abstract =      "Kaniska  earliest 100--126, latest 120--146.",

  author =        "Joe Cribb",
  title =         "{The early Kushan kings: new evidence for chronology.
    Evidence from the Rabatak inscription of Kanishka I}",
  booktitle =     "{Coins, art, and chronology.  Essays on the pre-Islamic
    history of the Indo-Iranian borderlands}",
  year =          "1999",
