EPIGRAPHIA INDICA

TELUGU CHOLA RECORDS FROM ANANTAPUR AND CUDDAPAH

(2 plates)

K. A. NILAKANTA SASTRI, MADRAS ; AND M. VENKATARAMAYYA, OOTACAMUND

Seven of the subjoined records, which come from the Cuddapah District, were first noticed in the early years of the last century by the Assistants of Col. Colin Mackenzie and described by them in their reports which are well-known as the Mackenzie Manuscripts Collection.2 The description of the contents of the inscriptions and their eye-copies found in these manuscripts revealed their importance for the history of the early Chōla rulers of the Telugu country. Estampages of the inscriptions were secured by Mr. M. Venkataramayya in May 1937 when he was studying Telugu Chōla history as a Research Scholar in the University of Madras, and they are now edited from those estampages. The rest, A, G, H, I and L, are edited from the estampages kindly supplied by Rao Bahadur C. R. Krishnamacharlu, late Government Epigraphist for India, Ootacamund. We are greatly obliged to Mr. N. Lakshminarayan Rao, Superintendent for Epigraphy, for his many useful suggestions and criticisms during the preparation of the article.

All the twelve records are in the early Telugu language and are engraved in the early Telugu-Kannaḍa script of the variety employed in the records of the Chālukyas of Bādāmi. They are assignable on palaeographical and historical grounds, which we shall discuss presently, to different dates from the second half of the 6th century to the end of the 8th century A. D. and belong to different members of the dynasty of the Chōlas of Rēnāṇḍu.
