Anymore supposed problems?
Well, you hadn't even addressed all the problems presented in the first post, but on this point you are mistaken. From 12-1BC, Quirinius was leading a military campaign in Galatia (modern day Turkey).

From 12 - 1 BC, he led a campaign against the Homonadenses, a tribe based in the mountainous region of Galatia and Cilicia, around 5 – 3 BC, probably as legate of Galatia. He won by reducing their strongholds and starving out the defenders. For this victory, he was awarded a triumph and elected as duumvir by the colony of Pisidian Antioch.
