Information conflicting and/or missing[edit]

This article states that Shravasti was the capital of Kosala from the 6th century BC to the 6th century AD. Then it proceeds to say that Kosala was defeated and absorbed by Magadha in the 4th century BC. That gives readers a gap of about 800+ years from when Magadha conquered Kosala to when the capital of Kosala was no loger at Shravasti. What happened after Kosala was absorbed by Magadha? Who ruled Kosala after the Mauryan Empire? When did the Guptas conquer Kosala, and when did they lose Kosala?

I've seen 3 different maps of India in the late 500s, and each of them show a different kingdom in this location. One shows "Kosala", another shows "Nala", and the third shows "Daksina". Which one is correct? Thomas Lessman (talk) 20:26, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
