Anekārthasamuccaya (अनेकार्थसमुच्चय) is also popularly known as Śāśvatakośa, named after the compiler Śāśvata (6th C.A.D.). This is an incomplete lexicon. Though the words are arranged in full, half and quarter verses, they are neither in alphabetical order nor according to the number of syllables as is generally found in many lexicons. Hence the reference value of this lexicon is comparatively less. The work is divided into six sections, the last two dealing with the indeclinables. However he has been quoted by Ksirasvamin and others of the 12th C.A.D.
