E) Using accounts of various ancient writers

When a modifier is in the begining of the sentence, I try to move it and see whether it makes sense. Ex:

Scholars, based on accounts of various ancient writers, have painted a sketchy picture...

Scholars can't be based on accounts of writer. Scholars can use the accounts of ancient writers.

Therefore, E will be my pick.
