about this context:

The Purāṇas (पुराण, purana) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahāpurāṇas total over 400,000 ślokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.

General definition (in Hinduism)

Jaimini (जैमिनि) does not appear till the Sūtra period. But a Jaiminīya-saṃhitā of the Sāmaveda is extant, and has been edited and discussed by Caland; and a Jaiminīya-brāhmaṇa, of which a special section is the Jaiminīya-upaniṣad-brāhmaṇa, is known and has formed the subject of several articles by Oertel.
