GALATIAN CHRONOLOGY
 
B.C.1300 - 750, Urnfield Culture, The earliest culture attributed to Celts in central Europe.  The name was inspired by the cremation practices and storage of ashes in urns. 
B.C.800 – 450, Hallstatt Culture, discovered by Austrian engineer Johann Georg Ramsauer.  It is a bronze dominant culture with a few early iron age weapons towards the end of the period.
B.C.~600,  The Greeks of the Anatolian colony of Phocae (Foça) establish a new colony in Massalia (Marceilles, France) that is known as the land of Celts at the time.[1]
B.C.400, La Tene Culture, discovered in Switzerland.  It is an iron age dominant culture.  Its other characteristics are kurgan type graves, burials of aristocrats and the use of chariots of war. (discovered by Hansli Kopp in 1857)
B.C.~400, Celts, in an attempt to take Massalia back, attack but agree to peace later. Reported by Pompeius Trogus in the 1st century A.D. [2] 
B.C. 4th century, Herodotus, Hecataeus, Plato, Aristotle, and Ephorus all write about Celts.  Herodotus makes two references to the Celts, and both references refer to their geographical proximity to the Danube. [3]  Hecataeus describes Massalia as "having been founded in the land of the Ligurians near the land of the Celts.” [4]
B.C. 4th century, Aristotle writes about a tribe called “Segobrigi” and their leader “Nannus,” in Massalia.  According to Aristotle, the meaning of the tribe’s name is “the people living in the fort of the strong hill.” [5]
B.C.369, The Sicilian king Dionysius brings Gallic mercenaries with him to the war in southern Greece. ,[6,7]
B.C.352, An inscription found in the ruins of a temple in Athens is the list of the temple treasury, and the list includes "sidera Keltika"  (iron Celtic weapons.) [8]
B.C.335, Summer: Alexander the Great comes across a group of Celts on the shores of Danube in Balkans. [9]
B.C.323, Another group of Celtic envoy visits Alexander the Great. 
B.C.321, The death of Alexander.  His generals partition the empire but continue to fight among themselves due to disputes.
B.C.310, Celts in Balkans attack southern regions such as Paionia and Triballi for the first time.
B.C. 310-240, Callimachus describes the huge Celtic crowd of the Balkans peninsula during the migration, in a poetic way.[10]   
B.C. 323-283,  Sopater, a playwright, in a comedy routine he mentions human sacrifice by Celts.  He is the first author to talk about Celtic human sacrifice.[11]
B.C. 281, January or February,  Battle of Corupedium[12]: The last battle of partition between the generals (Seleucus and Lysimachus) of the late Alexander.  General Seleucus wins and claims Macedonia.  At the same time, the pressure of Teutons on Celts in Europe increases.  Celts began to migrate from Balkans to the south in waves. 
B.C. 281, February: Lysimachus’ protegee Ceraunos kills Seleucus in a plot in Chersonese and claims Macedonia to himself.
B.C. 281, Spring: a small band of Celts under Cambaules (possibly hearing the rumors of Corupedium and wanting to see the situation firsthand)  crosses the Danube River, enters Macedonia and advances as far as Thrace but cannot withstand against natives who are numerously superior and return.[13]
B.C. 280, The number of Celts accumulating in the Balkans during the first instance of migration is 450,000 according to Polybius. [14]  21st century historian Mitchel comments “a whole nation on the move.” [15]  It is reported that these Celts are ready for a coordinated invasion under leadership of Brennus, Belgius and Cerethrius.  However, the development of the events in the region does not support it.[16]
B.C. 280, June-July: Celts under Belgius enter Macedonia and kill Ceraunos in a field battle, and they plunder the country side.  Ceraunos’ brother Meleager becomes the king of Macedonia, for 2 months.
B.C. 280, August-September: Antipatros Etesias replaces Meleager as king upon popular demand.  
B.C. 280, November-December, Sosthenes expels Antipatros and starts a guerrilla war against Celts.  It appears that Antipatros still has towns loyal to him in Macedonia.  Meanwhile, Celts have to move due to incursions by Sosthenes and they flow into Lysimachia and Chersonesse and look for ways to cross into Asia Minor.  We do not hear about Belgius from this point on.  Instead, we hear of two Celtic chieftains ruling the Celts in this region: Leonnorius and Lutorius.
Leonnarius, with a larger group of Celts goes to Byzantion and eyes for an opportunity to cross the Bosphorus into Asia Minor.
B.C.279/278 Winter, A second wave of Celts under Brennus crushes Sosthenes and his army.  Brennus enters Greece, sacks the Temple of Delphi.  Brennus dies; while the surviving Celts dispute among themselves on their way back. Some of them is said have joined the Celts in Thrace and others have gone to Toulussa.
With Sosthenes weakened, Antipatros is back in the game claiming Macedonia. He also sends ships with emissaries to Celts in Chersonese.  But he, himself, is attacked and defeated by Gonatas in Macedonia.
B.C.279/278, Lutorius who has been having hard time to find an authority to deal, captures the ships of Antipatros or reach a deal with the captains, and Celts cross Dardanelles into Asia Minor.  It is likely that Celts continue using the Chersonese as a stepping stone into Asia Minor. 
B.C. 278, Winter, Tectosages under Leonnorius  sign an agreement with King Nicomedes Bithynia to settle in Asia Minor in return for their services to the king.[17].  So, Nicomedes’ father Zipoetas is probably dead in the first month of 278.  Leonorius and his Celts enter Asia Minor via the Strait of Bosphorus.[18]  Celts find the kingdoms of Bithynia, Pontus, Seleucos and Armenia, there.  The status of Pergammon is not clear. 
B.C. 277, (Spring) Battle of Lysimacheia: Celts battle Antigonus Gonatas at Lysimacheia.  Before the battle, they study the internals of their sacrificial victims, possibly animals only.[19]  Antigonus Gonatas, as the new king of Macedonia, clears the Celts off the Thracian Chersonesse and takes over Lysimacheia.
This effectively ends the uncontrolled passage of Celts into Asia Minor.  Despite all the annihilation stories, Gonatas, a well mannered and concientious leader, appears to have kept these Celts in his service, as well as finding these Celts jobs elsewhere as merceneries.
B.C. 277, (late Summer[20]) Cerethrius, in command of another Celtic army, arrives in Chersonnese, possibly with the hopes of crossing to Asia Minor as well, but is ambushed by Gonatas while trying to take over.
B.C. 277, Fall: upon the news of Cerethrius, Commontorius, another Celtic chief who has been wandering in Thrace, decides to retreat east and founds the Kingdom of Tylis.
Meanwhile, Lutorius does not (or can not) stay in western Asia Minor and proceeds to east to join the Tectosages of Leonorius. 
B.C.277, Final months: Celts support the Bithynian king Nicomedes during the civil war against his revolting brother Zipoetas.  Nicomedes prevails. 
B.C.277, Following the civil war, Celts (Galatians) return to the western plains of Asia Minor.[21]  At this point, it is reported that Galatians were made up of 3 main tribes: Trocmi, Tolistobogii ve Tectosage, operating from north to south, in Pergammon and Seleucos lands in Asia Minor, in the given order.
B.C.276, 4000 Celts, sent by Gonatas, arrive in Egypt to work as mercenaries.  Galatians of Asia Minor, reportedly, continue to provide such services for Egypt for the next 300 years.[22] (They also try to take over Egypt, unsuccessfully.)
B.C.276/274, The Seleucos king, Antiochus I, shows up in Sardes to fight against Galatians but returns east due to the brewing war in Syria. 
B.C. 274? or before? Galatians side with the Pontus kings on a dispute on Amasis and prevent the Ptolemaic (Egyptian) Fleet’s  seaborn invasion at Herakleia.[23]
B.C.274-271,  Antiochus I returns to Asia Minor after winning the 1st Syrian war. 
B.C.268, Battle of the Elephants: Antiochus wins this war near Sardes but recognizes the settlement of Galatians in what is now called Galatia and continues to pay the Celts a tax (Galactica.)  This means the Seleucos kingdom was paying them taxes even prior to the battle.
B.C.266/270, Battle of Egypt and Pontic: There is no credible proof or evidence of actual occurrence of this war.[24] (conflict with Strobel’s info. above)

At the time of Eumenes, there is still a significant flow of Celtic mercenaries through Illyria.[30]

 15th century. In the Karamanids army, there a regimens of soldiers that speak with a funny accent that sounds like the Black Sea coastal region’s accent.  Galatian merceneries?
19th century: Galatians are completely forgotten in the memory of locals.   And the word "galat" passes on to Turkish as a derogatory word meaning “unrefined,” or “error in speech.”  The true meaning of the word was forgotten so much that even the origin of it is shown as Arabic in the contemporary dictionaries.[48]  
1947, The Turkish translation of a book by Ernest Chaput regarding geological and geomorphologic surveys in Turkey contains words such “Plains of Galatia,” “Plains of Likaonya,” or “Pontic,” literally copied by the Turkish translators shows that such names were still in use by then.[49]   As a result of Turkification policies of geographical names, Galatia was also hit along with some other 30,000+ geographical names. 
1974, Following the Turkey’s invasion of the northern Cyprus, the name of the village of Galatia, there, was changed to Turkish “Mehmetcik.”  The original human stock of the village is said to have been populated by the forced settlement of the natives of the Sivas province of Turkey, hence one of the last strongholds of the Galatian Trocmis….

The order and timing of the historical developments between B.C. 280 and 277 are poorly understood due to the scarcity and poor consistency of the available material.  Therefore, the chronological order presented between 280-270 is my own rendering of the events and the readers (students and researchers) should be taking it by the grain of salt.
