and Greece. The result is presented as line Ey on which "the Scaligerian historical epochs" are conditionally indicated by letters. In doing so, we denoted the discovered duplicates, - or epochs duplicating each other, proven close from the point of view of the methods described above - by identical letters. Such duplicates can also be conditionally named "repetitions". Due to the enormous amount of material, we shall present a rough diagram here. Boundaries of time intervals are approximate. The letters in the numerator are identical epochs, kind of "co-rulers". To assemble the information traditionally referring to a certain year on the global chronological map, one should draw a vertical segment through this year on line E and assemble the fragments of epochs and events it carves on the numerator and denominator of the fraction. Fig. 6.54 presents a fragment of the global chronological map showing the principles of its projection on the plane. Thus:
