The simplest explanation why the date may be off is that it’s rewoven cloth there.

This is page "Gr-Gz" of my Turin Shroud Dictionary. But historian Daniel Scavone, professor Emeritus of history at the University of Southern Indiana, has shown that the Shroud of Turin is the real object that inspired the Holy Grail legend. 672-735), an English monk, learned from a friend Nothelm in Rome that in the 6th century Liber Pontificalis ("Book of the Popes"), Pope Eleutherius († c. received a letter from Lucio Britannio rege asking for assistance in converting his lands to the Faith."
