The difference is 348, not 248 (!). And the Iliad was supposedly written in the late 700's B.C. yet refers to events that purportedly took place centuries earlier. Questions about its historicity notwithstanding, do you not consider that a source?

Just, HOW do you find this shit?
Well, Sir William Ridgeway was an accomplished and respected classical scholar. He contributed articles to the Encyclopedia Biblica (1903), Encyclopędia Britannica (1911) and wrote The Origin of Metallic Currency and Weight Standards (1892), and The Early Age of Greece (1901) which were significant works in Archaeology and Anthropology.

What do you think of the assertion that Thessalians were Illyrians?

Another book is cited there (from 1921), "A Companion to Latin Studies":

"...whilst there is no doubt that the Thessali, who gave their name to Thessaly, and the Dorians themselves, were Illyrian tribes."

Yes, he sounds like embarrassingly idiot. I understand this is 19th Century Science, but still I can't even imagine where these dates came from.

And there's more:

In The Early Age of Greece (1901), Ridgeway introduced the controversial theory that Homeric Achaeans were Celts who invaded Greece about two generations before the Trojan War and learned Greek from the Aegean peoples, and that the civilisation described by Homer belonged to the Early Iron Age. Discouraged by criticism, especially bearing on his insubstantial definition of Celts for purposes of the theory, he did not publish the second volume, which finally appeared in the form of separate essays edited by AJB Wace in 1926.
