The present set of copper plates was obtained by the Government Epigraphist for India from Mr. M V. Srinivasan, Manager of the Śrī Śukavanēśvara Temple at Salem, in August 1944.9 The history of its discovery is briefly stated to be as follows─“One Mr. Venkatagiri Bhaṭṭar,


[1]He is the subject of the verb samājñāpayati in the prose passage that follows. See above, p. 142, n. 8. As to a veiled reference here to the Vākāṭaka monarch Narēndrasēna, see above, p. 137.
[2]This reference to the three constituent elements of regal power, namely majesty, counsel and course─ prabhu śakti, mantra-śakti and vtśaha-śakti, expounded in treaties on Hindu pility.
[3] As to the functions of these officials, see above, p. 139.
[4] Fleet explains this term as meaning ‘irregular troops’ while Vogel has shown that a Chāṭa meant the head of a pargaṇā. C. I. I. Vol. III (Gupta Inscriptions), p. 109, et passim : Antiquities of Chamba State, Part I, pp. 131-32.
[5] According to Fleet, ‘soldiers’ or ‘ regular troops ’, and according to Vogel ‘an official subordinate to the head of theparagaṇā’. Loc. cit.
[6] This refers to ‘His Majesty the King’.
[7] For an explanation of this designation, see above, p. 139.
[8] Possibly the intention of the composer is to state that ‘this charter has been written by the Rāhasika Śiva son of Īśāna, and engraved by the goldsmith Mihiraka, son of Īśvara.
[9] I owe the opportunity of editing this inscription to the kindness of Dr., B. Ch. Chhabra, Government Epigraphist for India, who placed at my disposal the original plates with his tentative transcript and notes.
