EPIGRAPHIA INDICA

No. 7.- THE DATE OF THE KOTTAYAM (SYRIAN CHRISTIANS’)
PLATE OF VIRA-RAGHAVA.


BY. F. KIELHORN, PH.D., LL.D., C.I.E.; GÖTTINGEN.

After a careful examination of the Grantha letters in the Kôṭṭayam plate of Vîra-Râghava, above, Vol. IV. page 293, Mr. Venkayya has intimated that, on palæographical grounds, Vîra-Râghava’s grant may be assigned to about the 13th or 14th century A.D. Convinced of the general correctness of Mr. Venkayya’s conclusion, I have examined the date of the grant for the four hundred years from A.D. 1100 to A.D. 1500, and am enabled to state that during that period[3] there is only a single day for which the date is absolutely correct, viz. Saturday, the 15th March A.D. 1320.

__________________________________________
[3] For the same period of years I have calculated the date of the Tiruppûvaṇam plates of the Pâṇḍya Jaṭâvarman alias Kulaśêkharadêva, from the data furnished by Dr. Hultzsch in Ind. Ant. Vol. XX. p. 288, with the result that the only day between A.D. 1100 and 1500 which satisfies all the requirements of the date, is Saturday, the 29th November A.D. 1214. I may have an opportunity to treat more fully of this date on another occasion.
