The Kākatīya dynasty is represented in the current year’s collection by 8 inscriptions from the Guntur distrcit, of which six (Nos. 337, 305, 295, 293, 301 and 294) ranging in date from Śaka 1149 to Śaka 1174 belong to Gaṇapatidēva, and one (No. 307) dated in Śaka 1193 to his successor Rudradēva-Mahārāja (Rudrāmbā).

It may be noted that the donor is styled the Suṅkādhikāri of
