Dragon Harper is set over a decade before the events of Dragonsblood

I have just finished Dragon Harper and I am a little confused with the dates. In the prologue at Ista Weyr the date is 495.4AL . When talking about his lost wing J,lantir says it was 5 turns ago but it is only 496AL when he realises this and goes back in time. There isnt 5 turns between these dates. The book ends at 497.1AL. I think the dates are muddled. What do you think?
