followed by the expression agunēnți, or its variants, agunēndi, gunēnţi, gunēndi, gunēndu, mēnţi, nëndi and so on. The months are generally zodiacal; where solar, chiefly as the Uttarāyana and Dakşināyana Saņkrāntis. The sithis are generally calculated according to the Sūryya-siddhānta; and the Pūrnimānta scheme is followed preferably to the amânta.

The regnal years are always given in figures. They are followed by the technical expression--yagu çrāhi or gu çrāhi, or simply grāhi, çrā-i or crāhini; and preceded by the words. Pravarddhamāna-vijaya-rājya (increasingly victorious reign). The word "year" is generally denoted in Õșiyā and sometimes in Sanskrit inscriptions by anka; in the Tēlugu inscriptions by the words Samvatsara or its variants.

In the case of Cõragaŋga, only a selection of his inscriptions has been given; in the case of other kings, all the inscriptions known have been quoted. Altogether dates of 101 inscriptions have been given in the tables (see supra, p. 99], besides others referred to in the accounts given below them. These date-extracts, being mostly new, have been quoted in original for reference.

At the end of this article, a genealogical table of the entire Ganga family has been attached with years of reigns.

I. Coragaŋga.

(Çaka 998 - Çaka 1069.] Good many inscriptions of this king's time have been found, and reported in the Madras Epigraphical Report for 1895-96. More than one hundred have been found at Mukhalingam, besides two at Crikūrmam, and five in their neighbourhood. Of these, the date extracts of 34 are given below; but many of the inscriptions unfortunately cannot be verified :
