EPIGRAPHIA INDICA

No. 8.- DEVULAPALLI PLATES OF IMMADI-NRISIMHA ;
SAKA-SAMVAT 1427.
BY J. RAMAYYA, B.A., B.L.

As noticed in Mr. Sewell’s Lists of Antiquities, Vol. I. p. 134, these plates are preserved at Dêvulapalli in the Vâyalpâḍu tâluk of the Cuddapah district. At my request Mr. A. Krishnasvami Nayudau, B.A., Acting Tahsildar of Vâyalpâḍu, obtained a loan of the original plates and forwarded them to Dr. Hultzsch, who has kindly furnished me with a set of ink-impressions, from which I edit the inscription.

Dr. Hultzsch has supplied the following information regarding the original plates : ─ “Three copper-plates with rounded tops ; 11” height and about 6½” in breadth ; strung on a ring which is not soldered and which measures 4” in diameter and ½” in thickness. On the ring is soldere a rectangular seal which measures 1½” by 1” and bears, in relief on a countersunk surface, a standing boar which faces the proper left. In front of the boar is a dagger, and above the boar the sun and a crescent.
