But surely the word here is not "were" but "became". In the previous 
sentence we read that the temple fell on top of the people. What is the 
next thing that happened? They died, they BECAME dead. They were not 
dead before this! So this is an event, not a state, and so perhaps 
evidence of earlier usage and an earlier date.
