Here begins the Fifth Age of the World, extending from the time when the Jews went into captivity at Babylon, and enduring to the Birth of Christ—a period of 590 years. But some compute the time differently, reckoning the correct time of the Babylonian captivity from the eleventh year of the reign of Zedekiah (Sedechie). According to Eusebius, the seventy years of the captivity ended in the second year of Darius. But Josephus and St. Jerome reckon from the thirteenth year of King Josiah (Josie) to the third year of King Cyrus. Some reckon from the last year of King Jehoiachin (Joachim) to the last year of Cyrus. But, correctly understood, the seventy years which end in the third or last year of Cyrus are really the years of the Jewish captivity; while the period ending with the second year of Darius is in fact the time when the Jews had entirely left the country. According to the calculations of the Holy Scriptures, the Babylonian captivity occurred 4610 years from the beginning of the world; 2369 years from the Flood; 1427 years from the birth of Abraham, and in the twenty-eighth year of the reign of Tarquinius, the Roman king, and while Astyages reigned among the Medes, Europus

Who is king Europus? According to Smith's Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology (s.v. Europus, vol. 2, p. 108), Europus was "a son of Macedon and Oreithyia, the daughter of Cecrops, from whom the town of Europus in Macedonia was believed to get its name." Justin's Epitome (7.1) gives us additional context:

Macedonia was formerly caned Emathia, from the name of king Emathion, of whose prowess the earliest proofs are extant in those parts. As the origin of this kingdom was but humble, so its limits were at first extremely narrow. The inhabitants were called Pelasgi, the country Paeonia. But in process of time, when, through the ability of their princes and the exertions of their subjects, they had conquered, first of all, the neighbouring tribes, and afterwards other nations and peoples, their dominions extended to the utmost boundaries of the east. In the region of Paeonia, which is now a portion of Macedonia, is said to have reigned Pelegonus, the father of Asteropaeus, whose name we find, in the Trojan war, among the most distinguished defenders of the city. On the other side a king named Europus held the sovereignty in a district called Europa.

among the Macedonians, Alyattes (Alyacte) among the Lydias, Vaphre[Called Vaphres by Eusebius, Apries by Jerome, and Hophra by Jeremiah (Jeremiah 44:30).] among the Egyptians, and Nebuchadnezzar (Nabushodonosor) the First among the Chaldeans.

Here begins the captivity of the Hebrews that occurred with the destruction of Jerusalem and endured for seventy years. As the people of Israel for a long time had practiced idolatry and had spilled the blood of the innocent, God determined to destroy this race, and he ordained that this people should be in Chaldean captivity for seventy years, so that by the expiration of that time a new people, unencumbered with such sins, should go to Jerusalem to rebuild it.
