Ekākikeśarin (एकाकिकेशरिन्) or Ekākikesarin is the name of a Bhilla chief (senāpati), as mentioned in the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 123. Accordingly, “... but when they began to rain arrows upon him, the Vetāla, by the order of the king, devoured five hundred of them. The rest fled and told their chief what had occurred, and he, whose name was Ekākikeśarin, came there in wrath, with his host. But one of his servants recognized the monarch, and the chief, hearing from him who it was, came and clung to Vikramāditya’s feet, and announced himself”.

The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Ekākikeśarin, is a famous Sanskrit epic story revolving around prince Naravāhanadatta and his quest to become the emperor of the vidyādharas (celestial beings). The work is said to have been an adaptation of Guṇāḍhya’s Bṛhatkathā consisting of 100,000 verses, which in turn is part of a larger work containing 700,000 verses.
