THE CHOLAS OF RENANDU
7. No. 297 which is also from Veldurti belongs to Uttamāditya Chōla-
Mahārāja, a hitherto unknown member of this family. The inscription registers
of gift of pannavisa (pannasa) to a certain
Chēdiśarma, a Kōsiyapāra i.e., a Brahman
of the Kauśika-gōtra. Vikramāditya Chōla-Mahārāja, Chōla-Mahārājādhirāja
Vikramāditya and Śaktikomāra Vikramāditya are some other chief of this family
already known to us (Ep. Ind., Vol. XI, p. 343).
8. No. 303 from Miḍutūru opens with the characteristic eulogy Haridurdha-
ravara, etc., of the Telugu Chōlas and introduces the ,king Jaḍa-Chōli-Mahārāja who also bears the epithet Chōla-Mahārāja. A fragmentary inscription at Conjeevaram
mentions a Jaṭā-Chōḍa-Bhīma and his exploits, and the date of this record has
been read as Śaka 923 (A D. 1001-2) (Ep. Ind., Vol. XXI, p. 29). The present
inscription which is assignable on palæographical considerations to about
950 A. D. is, in all probability, a record of the predecessor, possibly the father
of Jaṭā-Chōḍa Bhīma of the Conjeevaram record.
