Pṛthvīseṭṭi is the name of a merchant mentioned in the “Miraj stone inscription of Vijayaditya”. Accordingly, “Success ! Hail ! ... (list of merchants, eg.,) Pṛthvīseṭṭi, the Chief of the Seventy-thousand (country);... who are the foremost among the Five-hundred Svāmīs, all the bearers of the bhalluṅki-staffs and all the bearers of the mummuri-staffs, who are resplendent with a series of numerous titles... who are virtuous by truthfulness, pure conduct, pleasing behaviour, policy, courtesy and knowledge as well as by (their) observance of the Vīra-Baṇañja Code... who are born in the race of Vāsudeva, Khaṇḍalī and Mūlabhadra... who hail from Ahicchatra... These (e.g., Pṛthvīseṭṭi) having assembled at Seḍambāl as the General Body of the Country...”

This stone inscription (mentioning Pṛthvīseṭṭi) was found on a slab built into the wall in the gateway of the fort of Miraj in the present Sānglī District of Mahārāṣṭra. It records that certain merchants who were foremost in the Trading Corporation of the Vīra-Baṇañjas assembled at Seḍambāl as the General Body and donated certain dues on commodities in favour of the god Mādhaveśvara. It is dated on Friday, the sixth Tithip of the bright fortnight of Bhādrapada in the Śaka year 1065, the cyclic year being Dundubhi.
