Arhanandi-siddhāntadeva is the name of a person mentioned in the “Bamaṇī stone inscription of Vijayaditya”. Accordingly, “... after washing the feet of Arhanandi-siddhāntadeva, the disciple of the great sage—the holy Māghanandi-siddhāntadeva, who is praised by the whole world...”.

This inscription (mentioning Arhanandi) is on a stone near the door of a Jaina temple at Bāmaṇī, a village 25 miles south-west of Kāgal, the chief town of the Kāgal-tālukā in the Kolhāpur District. It records the grant made by Vijayāditya of a field, a flower-garden, and a house, in the village Maḍalūra in the district of Paṇaturagegolla. It was made on the occasion of a lunar eclipse, on Friday, the full-moon tithi of Bhādrapada, in the cyclic year Pramoda, when 1073 Śaka years had elapsed.
