The average IQ of any studied population is always 100, that's how IQ works.
As to the question of whether people are more intelligent in terms of brain function now, there's no question that the answer is yes. Nutritional deficiencies alone would make the average person 2000 years ago significantly less intelligent.

Knowledge has nothing to do with IQ, and most people 2000 years ago were subsistence farmers with poor diets, not hunter gatherers (as nature intended) with varied diets and more meat.
Hunter gatherers were probably closer in intelligence to modern people than to settled farmers before recent times.

Pretty sure IQ is an invention of the XXth century and didn't exist 2000 years ago.
