Jayāditya (जयादित्य).—One of the famous joint authors (जयादित्य (jayāditya) and वामन (vāmana)) of the well-known gloss (वृत्ति (vṛtti)) on the Sutras of Panini, popularly called काशिकावृत्ति (kāśikāvṛtti). As the काशिकावृत्ति (kāśikāvṛtti) is mentioned by It-sing, who has also mentioned Bhartrhari's Vakyapadiya, as a grammer treatise Written some 40 years before his visit, the time of काशिकावृत्ति (kāśikāvṛtti) is fixed as the middle of the 7th century A.D. Some scholars believe that जयादित्य (jayāditya) was the same as जयापीड (jayāpīḍa) a king of Kasmira and बामन (bāmana) was his minister. For details, see pp. 386-388 of the Vyakarana Mahabhasya Vol. VII published by the D.E. Society, Poona. See काशिका (kāśikā).
