(= Pali dhaja-baddha, Vin. i.74.30 °dhaṃ coraṃ; commentary 997.14 dhajaṃ bandhitvā viya caratīti dhajabandho [so also several mss. in text!], Mūladevādayo viya loke pākaṭo ti vuttaṃ hoti, i.e. notorious, as if having raised a banner of thievery; [Sacred Books of the East] [Page288-b+ 45] 13.196 who wears the emblems [of his deeds]; it is not clear where [Pali Text Society’s Pali-English Dictionary], which renders captured, gets authority for the allegation that āhaṭa is meant, since this is not in the commentary on the above Vin. passage, the only one quoted in [Pali Text Society’s Pali-English Dictionary] s.v.), probably notorious (as a robber): cauro dhvaja- baddhakaḥ Mahāvyutpatti 8799 = Tibetan chom rkun por (as a robber- thief) grags pa (famous; but, curiously, this word may also mean bound, according to Jäschke (Tibetan-English Dictionary) and [Tibetan-English Dictionary]!); mā caurī, mā dhvaja- baddhikā Bhikṣuṇī-karmavācanā 16b.2, you aren't a (female) thief? a notorious one?
