MISCELLANEOUS INSCRIPTIONS IN KANNADA 

VOLUME IX - Part - I 

CHALUKYAS OF BADAMI

ON A STONE BY THE SIDE OF THE ISVARA TEMPLE AT PEDDAVADUGURU, GOOTY TALUK, ANANTAPUR DISTRICT.

This is not dated; it belongs to the reign of the Chalukya king Satyasraya whose proper name appears to be Ereyitiyadigal.  It registers the grant of the village Elpattu Simbhige, made tax-free, by Eretiyadigal after his subdugation of Ranavikrama, probably a Bana king.  It also registers the grant of the village Nadanuru, with the consent of the Bana king.  The engraver Mahendrapallavachari was granted 12 mattars of land at Nadanuru by the Majakamas.  If Ereyatiyadigal stands for Ereya which was a name of Pulakesin II this record may have to be assigned to the reign of that king.
