Dhālana (धालन), father of Vapyaiya, is the name of a Brāhmaṇa mentioned in the “Ṭhāṇā plates of Mummuṇirāja”. Accordingly, “and to the Brāhmaṇa Vapyaiya, the son of the Brāhmaṇa Dhālana, who has mastered the six vedāṅgas¸ of the Vāsiṣṭha-gotra and the Ṛgveda-śākhā, who has emigrated from Karahāṭa”.

These copper plates (mentioning Dhālana) were discovered in 1956 while digging the ground between the Church and the District Office at Ṭhāṇā, the chief town of the Ṭhāṇā District in Mahārāṣṭra. Its object is to record the grant, by the Śilāhāra Mummuṇirāja, of some villages and lands to learned Brāhmaṇas on the occasion of the lunar eclipse on the fifteenth tithi of the bright fortnight of Phālguna in the Śaka year 970, the cyclic year being Sarvadhārin.
