Nāṭyaśāstra (theatrics and dramaturgy)
Kacchapī (कच्छपी).—According to Śivaramamurit, the term kacchapī might have indicated a “guiter-like vīṇā”, an instrument, which he observed in the sculptures at Amarāvatī. The pear-shaped resonator resembles a tortoise-shell, but the long neck of this instrument contradicts a comparison with the animal.Source: Google Books: Dattilam: A Compendium of Ancient Indian Music
