(E)

Here is my explanation :

The Gaul chronicler Peter, recording the sack of Rome by Gauls in 387 BC (participle clause, correctly modifies Peter), notes (correct verb) laboriously that it was contemporaneous with ("with" is the correct preposition) the peace of Antalcidas and the siege of Rhegium by Dionysius (it is contemporaneous with two other incidents), and that (this expletive introduces another parallel idea) it happened nineteen years after the battle of Aegospotami and sixteen years before the battle of Leuctra (after X and before Y).

E for me...

first of only D and E use the right tense and connectors.

also i belive the idiom is "contemporaneous with"

E it is..

An SC worthy of being an RC.

Yeah, its E because of the way the commas are used, the content within the commas must be a non-restrictive clause. D and E are the only ones that survive. E is parallel.

Thank god I chose E. Its a morale booster. I have noticed that with a little critical look you can break bigger SCs easily compared with smaller SCs.

I choose E.
A and C out -> recorded, noted/noting -> awkward construction. Something wrong as well, can't put my finger on it.
B -> "that sixteen years" is wrong
D-> "contemporaneous on" is not correct
E -> "contemporaneous with" is better.

Keep thinking like that and you will refine SCs to the point where they will catapault you into the V 40s.
