The circled portions and dates are what's relevant to the discussion. Your un-calibrated dates are meaningless in this regard.
Perhaps you should take this issue up with Bruins and his colleagues. The photograph shows evidence of two eruptions - solidified ash crushed by a later tsunami. Are there any Egyptian records from 1613 BCE which suggest that a massive volcanic eruption had occurred in the Mediterranean Sea? Surely its impact on that part of the world would have been recorded. There are none, as far as I am aware. The Hyksos were in charge in Lower Egypt only. Also no records there.
