Do the starting positions for the sandbox correspond to some specific date, are is it a fudge that lets all the factions exist concurrently?

As a history major who likes this time period it does seem pretty accurate to me, some of Athens' holdings in the Black Sea I could disagree with (the ones really far north the ones near byzantium are fine). I think Epirus extended a bit further south, but the map is very accurate. The game takes place in 359 BC which is when Phillip takes the throne of Macedon.
