    Resumé

    Analysis of the geometrical chapters Mahavira's 9th-century Ganita-sara-sangraha reveals inspiration from several chronological levels of Near-Eastern and Mediterranean mathematics: (1)that known from Old Babylonian tablets, c. 1800-1600 BCE; (2)a Late Babylonian but pre-Seleucid Stratum, probably c. 500 BCE; (3) a type known both from Seleucid cuneiform tablets and from Demotic Egyptian papyri, c. 200 BCE
