“Com Reigned in His Stead and He Reigned Forty and Nine Years”

Brant Gardner

Com also has a reign that extends farther than the 30 year average used to produce the backbone chronology here. However, one should be hesitant to use the longer term as a model, since it may be listed precisely because it was longer than normal.

Chronology: The average-reign chronology places Com at 890-860 B.C. Obviously, his stated reign was longer than this. Nevertheless, these years are sufficient to give the general time-depth of his reign for comparison purposes.
