Seleukos Nikator-Megasthenes

After the death of Alexander Chandragupta Maurya occupied many places in North India and Greeks were driven out.

Seleukos Nikator, who was kept as incharge of Indian possessions by Alexander, crossed Indus river with huge army to recover the lost territories.

Chandragupta Maurya defeated Seleukos Nikator and a treaty was concluded between them.

As per the treaty, Seleukos Nikator gave Kabul, Kandahar, Herat and Beluchistan to Chandragupta and also gave his daughter in marriage to Chandragupta.

Seleukos Nikator sent his ambassador named Megasthenes to the Mauryan Court.

The famous book 'Indica' was written by Megasthenes.
