He is stated to have also sold his rights over some other lands for 540 panam presumably for meeting the other expense of his marriage like the presentation of angabhu shaman to the bride and similar items. These kaniyatchi lands comprised a tiruvidaiyattam land of Nayanar Tirumeyya-Malaiyalan, one of Emberumal, and a devadana land of god Pilliyar of local shrine. The others belonged to private individuals.

As this person who now makes a gift to his son, of some of his possessions, has figured in No. 395 above, which is of the same date as the present inscription, it is to be understood that his contemplated marriage to in that record was a later and second one.
