Which came first—the colony on Alpha Centauri or Terra Nova?

Each lays claim to this fact.

It's been a while since I've seen Terra Nova so you'll have to excuse my fuzzy memory. Did they say anything in the episode about it being the first?

Reading their histories, I think someone said the Alpha Centaurans had been transported there around 300 BCE, from Greece(?), while the Terra Nova colony was more recent--say, in Enterprise time.

The Terra Nova colony was founded in 2079; Alpha Centauri was in the early 22nd century. That's from the articles.
