 (38) F. E. Pargiter (1852-1927).
But, Pargiter, rejecting all those evidences, assumes a date 950 BC in his mind and, squeezing the reigning period of all the dynasties that ruled Magadh, he just terminates 2,189 years out of his free will and says that Mahabharat war happened in 950 BC.
So, 3139 BC (-) 1,598 years of the total reign of four dynasties comes to 1541 BC, which was the coronation year of Chandragupt Maurya who succeeded after Mahapadm Nand.
Instead of 1541 BC, Pargiter took 322 BC for Chandragupt Maurya because it was stated by Sir William Jones, and thus, terminated 1,219 years in one shot.

In 336 BC the orator Ctesiphon proposed that Athens honor Demosthenes for his service by presenting him, according to custom, with a golden crown.
In 324 BC Demosthenes was convicted, probably unjustly, of accepting a bribe from Harpalus, to whom Philip's son, Alexander the Great, had entrusted huge treasures and who had absconded and found refuge in Athens.
After Alexander's death in 323 BC Demosthenes again urged the Greeks to liberate themselves, but Alexander's successor in Macedon, Antipater, quelled all resistance and demanded that the Athenians turn over the leading patriots, including Demosthenes, to him.
