The Koṇidena Coḍas were a branch of the Renāḍu Coḍas. They were mentioned in the epigraphs of 10th century in the Koṇidena region. The earliest members of this line were Kannāra Coḍa and Kāma Coḍa and ruled Kamma-nāḍu, Guṇḍikurti and Motaṭi regions, as the subordinates of the Velenāṭi Coḍas.

The Coḍas of Nellore were prominent among the Telugu Coḍas and were generally subordinates of the Imperial Colas. They played a prominent role in the politics of the Colas, the Pāṇḍyas and the Hoyasalas and tried to gain dominance over the Tamil country during the 13th century.
