Abhayam (अभयम्).—King Idhmajihva divided his kingdom Plakṣadvīpa into seven parts and gave them to his seven sons. Abhayam is one of the parts. The other six parts are:—Śivaṃ, Yamasaṃ, Subhadraṃ, Śāntaṃ, Kṣemaṃ and Amṛtaṃ. See "Idhmajihva". (Bhāgavata, 5th Skandha, Chapter 20, Verse 2). It is seen (from Mahābhārata Sabhā Parva, Chapter 30, Verse 9) that the territory known as Abhayam was conquered by Bhīmasena. (See Footnote)(Source): archive.org: Puranic Encyclopaedia
