3rd Century B.C.

Alexander the great came to Punjab in 326 B.C. At this time Raja Ambi [ Orphis ] was king of Taxila and was at war with the Paurava king Porus whose kingdom was beyond the Jhelum river . Raja Ambi allied himself with Alexander and joined hands with Ora in Swat [ the Udaygram ruins ] and Puskalavati [ today Charsadda near Peshawar]

After Alexander's death in 323 B.C. Gandhara came under the Mauryan Emperors of India .

The Nandas

The Nandas were the successors of the Saisunaga dynasty. The 9 Nandas mentioned in the Mahabodhivamsa are:
Ugrasena
Panduka
Pandugati
Bhutapala
Rashtrapala
Govishanaka
Dasaisddhaka
Kaivarta
Dhana

Dhananand: According to the Mahabohivamsa, Dhanananda was the last king of Nanda dynasty. It is suggested that he should be identified with the Agrammes or Xandrames of the classical writers. He was called Dhanananda from his being addicted to hoarding treasure ...He collected riches to the amount of eightly Kotis ia a rock in the bed of the river Ganges.

           It is stated that Alexander got information regarding the military strength and unpopularity of the last Nanda king. Plutarch tells us that CGM had stated that the Nanda king was hated and despised by his subjects on account of the wickedness of his disposition and meanness of his origin.
