EPIGRAPHIA INDICA

No. 40.─ KARHAD PLATES OF KRISHNA III. ;

SAKA-SAMVAT 880.

BY R. G. BHANDARKAR, M.A., PH.D., C.I.E.

These copper plates were found at Karhâḍ in the Satara district while the foundations of an old and dilapidated house were being dug out, and were put into my hands by Mr. Hari Narayan Apte, the present manager of the Ânandâśrama in Poona. They are three in number, and each is 13½ inches long and 9 inches the broad. The first and the third plates are engraved on one side, and the second on both.

The grantee was Gaganaśiva (ll. 61 and 65), who was versed in all the Śivasiddhântas. He was the pupil of Îśânaśiva of Karahâṭa (l. 59 f.),─ the modern Karhâḍ ;─ and the grant was made for the maintenance of the ascetics that lived at the place (l. 61).

The date of the grant was Wednesday, the thirteenth tithi of the dark fortnight of Phâlguna of the cyclic year Kâlayukta, the Śaka year being 880 past (l. 56 f.). Professor Kielhorn has favoured the Editor with the following remarks on this date :─ “ Śaka-Saṁvat 880 expired by the southern luni-solar system was Kâlayukta, and the equivalent of the date is
