Given the manner in which they are cited, it seems likely that this refers to a single work and its commentary — the Ārya-satyâvatāra would be the name of a work in kārikās, which would have an accompanying commentary, both being associated with the name of Jotipāla.The Jñeya-saptati-ṭīkā would be the name of this commentary. One of the views given in the JS-ṭ passages in Vism-sn is attributed in Sumaṅgala’s twelfth/thirteenth century commentary on the Abhidhammâvatāra (Abhidh av ṭ) to Jotipāla.I presented evidence to show that Sandrokottos of Greek accounts should be identified with Chandragupta-I of Imperial Gupta Dynasty, instead of Chandragupta Maurya.

(note 1) Contemporary scholars in Asia and the West have suggested various dates that differ from the traditional Sinhalese/Theravaadin dates of 624-544 BCE; for example: The reasoning and evidence used in calculating these dates are diverse and are not always conclusive or convincing.This no doubt accounts for some of the increasing North Indian awareness of Theravāda during this period.Siddhartha Gautama, the Lord Buddha, was born in 623 B. in the famous gardens of Lumbini, which soon became a place of pilgrimage.Among the pilgrims was the Indian emperor Ashoka, who erected one of his commemorative pillars there.The site is now being developed as a Buddhist pilgrimage centre, where the archaeological remains associated with the birth of the Lord Buddha form a central feature.
