Nāgārjunadeva (नागार्जुनदेव) is mentioned in the “Ṭhāṇā plates of Nāgārjuna”. Accordingly, “What is written in this charter has been approved by Me, the Mahāmaṇḍaleśvara, the illustrious Nāgārjunadeva, the son of the Mahāmaṇḍaleśvara, the illustrious Vajjaḍadevaraja.”.

These copper plates (mentioning Nāgārjunadeva) were discovered in a tank in the locality called Pancha Pākhādī outside the town of Ṭhāṇā in 1965. The object of the present plates is to record the grant, by Mahāmaṇḍaleśvara Nāgārjuna, of a plot of land in the village Muñjavalī to Mādhava Paṇḍita, son of Gokarṇa Paṇḍita, of the Pārāśara gotra and Yajurveda-śakhā. The grant is dated in śaka 961, on the fifteenth tithi of the dark fortnight of Śrāvaṇa, Wednesday, the cyclic year being Pramāthin, with a solar eclipse.
