Gota (गोत) (or Gotra) refers to the “sub-clans” of the Kāyastha groups from Māthurā, according to the “Samoṣaṇa Kāitha Māthura-rāsa” (dealing with caste history), and is included in the collection of manuscripts at the ‘Vincenzo Joppi’ library, collected by Luigi Pio Tessitori during his visit to Rajasthan between 1914 and 1919.—An important part of the text is devoted to the exposition of the various gotas (Skt. gotra) of the Kāyasthas, of their clan-deities and of their places of origin (kuladevī, 217r and foll.), as recapitulated by the poet at the end. Samoṣaṇa, the protagonist of this historical poem, alias Samokhan (?), has not been traced by me in other sources. The story of his life takes place during the Māṇḍū Mālvā Sultanate of the Khaljī dynasty (1436-1531).
