That is why I said “archeology” and not “history”. While I have not read
them myself, other commenters (including those who attempt to maintain the
date you mentioned) recognize that the letters do not reflect 14th century
BC Levant as revealed by archeology, rather they reflect a date centuries
later, namely Iron Age ninth to eighth centuries BC.
This is getting off topic, so that’s all I’ll say here.
