Bremmer dates it to around BCE. Indian scholar Shankar Balakrishna Dixit dates the Shatapatha Brahmana to BCE, based on a statement in the text that the Krittikas the open star cluster Pleiades never deviate from the east.
Dikshit interpretesd this statement to mean that the Krittikas rise exactly in the east, and calculated that the Krittikas were on the celestial equator at about BCE.
American scholar David Pingree , a professor at the Brown University , argues that according to the Shatapatha Brahmana , only the Krittikas never deviate from the east, but several other nakshatras were also on the equator at about BCE.
Based on this argument, Pingree rejects Dikshit's dating. Narahari Achar, an Indian-origin professor at the University of Memphis , dismisses Pingree's objection as baseless, based on his analysis of the text and of the historical star positions using the SkyMap software.
According to Achar, the Shatapatha Brahmana also states that the Saptarishis the Big Dipper stars rise in the north, which suggests that the authors of this statement in the text made their observation around BCE, from a location to the south of Delhi. The 14 books of the Madhyandina recension can be divided into two major parts. The first 9 books have close textual commentaries, often line by line, of the first 18 books of the corresponding samhita of the Yajurveda.
Among the points of interest in the text are its mythological sections, including the myths of creation and the Deluge of Manu. The Shatapatha Brahmana of Madhyandina School was translated into English by Julius Eggeling , in the late 19th century, in 5 volumes published as part of the Sacred Books of the East series.
The English translation of Kanva School was done by W. Caland in 3 parts.
