Page lxxxvii, line 8-The Māsēr inscription has since been edited by Mr. M. Venkataramayya in Ep. Ind., Vol. XXIX, pp. 18 ff. He thinks that Narasiṁha of the Śulkī family, who fought with the Kalachuris, held sway over the Bilhāri region. He identifies the territory Viḍa-dvādaśa (Viḍa- 12) which he held with the village Vīḍā donated by the Kalachuri queen Nōhalā to the god Śiva. Kṛishṇarāja at whose command Narasiṁha fought against the Kalachuris was, according to Mr. Venkataramayya, the Rāshṭrakūṭa king Kṛishṇa III. It is difficult to accept these indentifica- tions. Viḍa- 12 was probably a fairly large territory. It must have been situated somewhere outside the Kalachuri dominion, and cannot therefore be identified with the small village Vīḍā near Bilhāri. Again, the Māsēr inscription shows that Narasiṁha not only fought with the Kalachuris but killed a Kalachuri king; for he is said to have initiated the wives of a Kala- churi king into widowhood. Kṛishṇarāja at whose command he did this is not likely to have been the Rāshṭrakūṭa Kṛishṇa III, who is known to have married a Kalachuri princess.
,, xci, para. 1, line 7-For Mahipāla read Mahīpāla.

,, xcvii, para. 2, line 2-Two earlier dates of the reign of Kīrtivarman are also known, viz., V. 1132
(1075 A. C.) of the Darbat image inscription (Ind. Hist. Quart., Vol. XXX, pp. 183 ff.). and V.
1147 (1090 A. C.) of the Kālañjar stone inscription (A. R. A. S. I. for 1936-37, pp. 92 ff.).
,, ci, line 5-6-In the Kudlur plates of Mārasiṁha II the Rāshṭrakūṭa king Kṛishṇa III is called Nara-
pati (lord of men). So the reference to Narapati in Karṇa’s title may signify his victory over
the Later Chālukya king Sōmēśvara I-Āhavamalla. As stated before (p. xcvi), an Apabhrṁśa
verse mentions Karṇa’s defeat of Sōmēśvara I’s son Vikramāditya VI.
,, cviii, para. 1, line 2-For Mahārājakumāra read Mahākumāra.
