EPIGRAPHIA INDICA

BOBBILI PLATES OF CHANDAVARMAN, KING OF KALINGA ; YEAR 4

(1 Plate)

R. K. GHOSHAL, CALCUTTA

The copper-plates, which bear the subjoined inscription, were received in the Office of the Superintendent for Epigraphy, Madras, from Mr. Sivaramadas, as inhabitant of Bobbili in the Vizagapatam District of Madras, through the Tahsildar of that place. The plates which have since been presented by Mr. Sivaramadas to Government, are now deposited in the Archaeological Section of the Indian Museum, Calcutta. Only short notices of the plates have appeared[1] till now. I edit the inscription for the first time from a set of ink-impressions kindly supplied by Dr. N. P. Chakravarti, Government Epigraphist for India.

These are three plates of copper with plain edges, measuring 6½″ by 2⅛″. Towards the proper right end of each plate, there is a ring-hole, ⅜″ in diameter, through which the plates slide on to a copper ring, 2¾″ in diameter. The ends of the ring are soldered on to an elliptical seal measuring 1⅛″ by ⅝″. The seal bears, in a rectangular incuse, the legend Pitri(tṛi)bhaktaḥ in the same alphabet as that of the plates.
