Eḍūka.—cf. eḍuo (CII 2-1), supposed to be ‘a wall into which bones (meaning planks and other hard substances) have been inserted in order to strengthen the structure’, because it is explained in a commentary as asthy-aṅkita kuḍya; but asthy- aṅkita-kuḍya seems to mean a Buddhist stūpa raised on cor- poreal relics which were an object of worship. Although the word kuḍya is reckoned in the lexicons in the sense of a wall, it seems to mean ‘a mound’ in this case. The word aidūka derived from eḍūka is used in Buddhist Sanskrit in the sense of a Buddhist stūpa. See IHQ, Vol. XXIX, pp. 302-03. Note: eḍūka is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
