No. 6.-THREE WESTERN GANGA RECORDS IN THE MYSORE GOVERNMENT
MUSEUM AT BANGALORE.
BY J. F. FLEET, PH.D., C.I.E.
In Vol. V. of this Journal, pp. 151 to 180, I have contributed an article on the Śravaṇa-Beḷgoḷa epitaph of Noḷambântaka-Mârasiṁha II., with a first serious attempt to settleb the
real history and chronology of the family of the great Gaṅga princes of Mysore, to which
he belonged. That article is correct in all its essential features. But, while it was still in proof,
it came to my knowledge from information that became available too late, that certain additions
and modifications might be made, and certain corrections ought to be made, in it. The additions
did not much matter ; they could be attended to on any future occasion. The modifications
and corrections were a more important matter ; and it way mortifying not to be able to make
them. The proofs, however, were in pages, with other articles already in page-proof after them.
And it was, therefore, impossible to make the necessary alterations. In these circumstances,
I had to leave my article just as it stood. And I now take the first convenient opportunity
that I have had, of reverting to the subject of it.
