deemed reasonable, then Vidyādhara's time falls during the rule of Nșsimha Dēva I., and not of Nșsiniha Dēva II. Before concluding this article I may point out that I am not satis

fied with the time at, and the locality in Sāhityadarpaņa: its date and place.

which, the Sahitya darpana is said to have

been composed. Dr. Weber following Pandit Jaganmohan Çarman in the preface to his edition of Caņda-kançika, said that “the Sāhitya-darpana was only composed towards the middle of the 15th century in East Bengal on the banks of the Brahmaputra" [Hist. Ind. Lit., p. 231, note 244]. Prof. Macdonell evidently adopts this view [Sans. Lit., App. p. 434].

How far this conclusion is based on facts, and how far on mere traditions I do not know. But the Sāhitya-darpaşa itself does not support it. From the verse and comments quoted above, it is clear that Candraçēkhara, father of Viçvanātha, was a contemporary of a Bhānu Dāva; and if of Bhānu Dāva I., then, Viçvanātha lived during the rule of his son, Nýsimha Dēva II. [A.D. 1279-1306], or at the latest during the rule of his grandson Bhānu Dāva II. [A.D. 1306-1328]. In the vrtti to Kārika 266, a Mahomedan king, Allāpadīna, is named, which may refer to the Delhi Sultān, 'Alā-ud-din Mas'ûd Shāh [A.D. 12411246), or to the later and greater king, 'Alā-ud-din Muḥammad Shāh [A.D. 1295-1315]. One stanza in praise of a king NȚsiṁha is quoted in the vștti to kār. 671 ; but it is not to be found in the Ēkāvalī. The other historical allusions are Suratrāņa, or Sultan [vr. to kār. 686.], Gaud-ēndra [vr. to kār. 17], and Tri-Kalinga-bhūmi-tilaka [ur. to kār. 258].

From the references above quoted with others to Kalinga [vr. to kār. 13, 15, and 17], to Rāghavānanda [vr. to kār. 3 and 120], and to Mahima Bhatta's vyakti-vivēka [ur. to kār. 2 and 257], Viçvanātha would seem to be an author not of East Bengal, but of Orissa ; while his time would be at least not later than the beginning of the 14th century A.D.

Viçvanātha evidently came of a learned family. His great-greatgrandfather, Nārāyaṇa, (vr. to kar. 33], and his grandfather's younger brother Caņņidāsa [vr. to kār. 266, and 60], are described as leading scholars. His father, Candraçēkhara, was a minister and a scholar, and has been referred to in nine places, while his poem Puspa-mālā and Prākşta work Bhāş-ārņava have been specially mentioned. Viç vanātha quotes frequently from his own works (56 times as mama), and men. tions or quotes from, as his own works, Kuvalayācua-caritam, a Prāksta poem (2 times), Candrakalā, a nātikā (7 times), Prabhāvatī-parinayam, a drama (10 times), Praçasti-ratnavāli, a work in 16 bhāṣās (1 time), and Rāghavavilāsa, a Mahākāvya (2 times).

In the-Sähitya-darpana I have been unable to find out any quotation from or any mention of the Ēkāvali, a fact which may somewhat go in favour of Ekávalī's later date. Can Cõțagaŋga's son Umā. vallabha be connected in any way with the Umāvallabha of Candraçēkhara's stanza ? Mahima Bhatta is quoted in Alaykārā-sarvasva as vyakti-vivēka-kāra, and is there quoted as an authority; while Alankārasarvasva-kāra is quoted in the Ekāvali as an authority. A fairly long time should therefore be allowed between Mahima Bhatta and Vidyā dhara, a fact wbich lends some support to the identification of Candraçēkhara's Umāvallabha, Cõşaganga's son.
