One thing is certain about Eusebius--he believed in an exodus of the Jews 
from Egypt and seems to have been at one with Artapanus regarding the details.  
See his "Praeparatio Evangelica".  Bar Hebraeus, a man who wrote the history of 
the world in Syriac, agreed with these, as well.  They placed an exodus 490 
years after the era of Abraham.
