Anyatama (अन्यतम):—m. f. n.

(-maḥ-mā-mam) Any one of many, either of many; e. g. vātapittaśleṣmaśoṇitamedomūtrāntranimittāḥ sapta vṛddhayaḥ . tāsāṃ mūtrāntranimitte vṛddhī vātasamutthe kevalamutpattiheturanyatamaḥ; or in the dual, e. g. bhujakoṭikarṇānāmanyatame jñāte nyatamayorjñānāya karaṇasūtram; in the plur., e. g. tāsāmanyatamāḥ (scil. rākṣasyaḥ) kṣipraṃ rāvaṇāyācacakṣire. Also ‘any’ in general; e. g. hīnamanyatamenāpyavayavena nyūnam. Comp. anyatara. [According to Vopadeva (7. 96.) anyatama is formed with the taddh. aff. ḍatama and would therefore be a pronoun, according to his rule 3. 9., which again would assimilate its declension to that of sarva (cf. 3. 35-37. 75); but as there is no evidence to this effect in Pāṇini or in the literature, and as Vopad. himself mentions anyatara in the rule 3. 9., the word anya in the rule 7. 96. must be an inaccuracy of this grammarian, the correctness of the reading being placed beyond doubt by the comm. of Durgādāsa.] E. anya, taddh. aff. tamap.
