    How should I understand this question?

    The Pyramids of Egypt were built 1700 years before the founding of Carthage; Carthage was founded 47 years before and was destroyed 607 years after the founding of Rome, or 146 years before the Christian era. How many years before Christ were the Pyramids built?
    Does the red part mean 146 years before the founding of Carthage or the destruction of Carthage?
