Anantaśaktivarman, grandson of Śaktivarman, is the name of a person mentioned in the “Pedda-Dugam plates of Śatrudamana” (5th century A. D.). The Ragolu plates, issued by the Māṭhara king Śaktivarman from Piṣṭapura, record a grant of land in the neighbourhood of Siṃhapura, while the Ningondi and Sakunaka grants of Prabhañjanavarman and Anantaśaktivarman, respectively the son and grandson of Śaktivarman, were issued from Siṃhapura itself.

These plates (mentioning Anantaśaktivarman) were discovered in the course of digging the earth for the foundation of a house at the village of Pedda-Dugam in the Narasannapet Taluk of the Srikakulam District, Andhra State. It was issued to the villagers headed by Brāhmaṇas and others, residing at the three localities called Duhāgrāma, Vasuvāṭaka and Govāṭaka.
