Answer

He was born 20 B.C. There were 120 years between the birth of King Eros and the death of King Tut, but since their ages amounted to 100 years, there must have been 20 years when neither existed. This would be the period between the death of King Eros, 40 B.C and the birth of King Tut, 20 B.C.
