Option 4 is the right answer.

Tamralipta was the name of an ancient city on the Bay of Bengal believed by scholars to be on the site of Tamluk in midnapore district of modern-day India. It is believed that Tamralipti was the exit point of the Mauryan trade route for the south and south-east.It was located near Rupnarayana river.
This place has been mentioned in mahabharata as a place which bhima acquired. It was linked by roads with the major towns of that time Rajagriha, Shravasti, Pataliputra, Varanasi, Champa, Kaushambi and Taxila.
