The onset of the Persian Wars (480 BC to 448 BC) is usually taken as the dividing line between the Archaic and the Classical periods, and the reign of Alexander the Great (336 BC to 323 BC) is taken as separating the Classical from the Hellenistic periods.
The fully mature fl-figure technique, with added red and white details and incising for outlines and details, originated in Corinth during the early 7th century BC and was introduced into Attica about a generation later; it flourished until the end of the 6th century BC.
Some of the best known Hellenistic sculptures are the Winged Victory of Samothrace (2nd or 1st century BC), the statue of Aphrodite from the island of Melos known as the Venus de Milo (mid 2nd century BC), the Dying Gaul (about 230 BC), and the monumental group Laocoön and his Sons (late 1st century BC).

 6000 BC - 1700 AD: Early Applications and Speculation
400 BC Hippocrates (460 - 377 BC) determined that the male contribution to a child's heredity is carried in the semen.
320 BC Aristotle (384 - 322 BC), choosing to reject the theories of Hippocrates, told his students that all inheritance comes from the father.
The male semen, he asserted, determines the baby's form, while the mother merely provides the material from which the baby is made.

 Sun Tzu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
However, the biography is not consistent with other sources for the period, and both the form and content of The Art of War indicate that it was most likely written between 400 BC and 320 BC.
Sun Tzu's own work, The Art of War appears to provide a number of direct clues to his life, for example, war chariots described by Sun Tzu were used for a relatively brief period ending in the 4th century BC and so dates at least part of the work to that time.
Sun Bin, also known as Sun the Mutilated, a crippled descendent of Sun Tzu, also wrote a text known as the Art of War although possibly a more accurate title might be the Art of Warfare since this was more directly concerned with the practical matters of warfare.

Timocharis of Alexandria (circa 320 BC - 260 BC) was a Greek astronomer and philosopher.
In approximatelly 300 BC, with the help of Aristillus, he created the first star catalogue.
Over 150 years later, Hipparchus would compare his own star catalogue to Timocharis' and discover that the longitude of the stars had changed over time, which led him to determine the first value of the precession of the equinoxes.

 DBM - Antigonid Successor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Xystophoroi: Although Antigonos was usually well supplied with horse, his initial force in 321 BC had just 2000 horse, and Demetrios once had a force of 15000 foot and just 400 horse, hence the minima of just two elemnts in total, one of which is Xystophoroi.
Over 9000 are recorded in the phalanx at Paraitakeni; Demetrios in 314 BC had some 10000 mercenaries compared to just 2000 Macedonian foot, and had reputedly 15000 merceanries of all sorts by 302 BC, the vast majority, if not all of which, were Greeks.
Pre 315 BC Naval: Antigonos had a small fleet at Byzantium in 318 BC, including transports (seemingly small boats) filled with archers, slingers and other psiloi; the larger vessels had marines picked from the bravest of his infantry ('hypaspists').
