Daṇḍapuṣkiṇī (दण्डपुष्किणी) is a place-name classified as a puṣkariṇī and mentioned in the Gupta inscription No. 52. The Gupta empire (r. 3rd-century CE), founded by Śrī Gupta, covered much of ancient India and embraced the Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Though the reading is Daṇḍapuṣkiṇī, it is to be corrected as Daṇḍapuṣkariṇī. Daṇḍa meaning punishment or rod seems to be a personal name here and the puṣkariṇī was named after him or else it may have been in his possession.
