Rumaṇvat (रुमण्वत्) is the son of Supratīka, who was the commander-in-chief of King Śatānīka, and later king Udayana, according to the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 9. Śatānīka was a King from the Pāṇḍava family and son of Janamejaya.

According to the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 19, a spy of king Udayana, with the help of Rumaṇvat, put to death several assassins of king Brahmadatta. The kingdom of Brahmadatta was the first to be conquered by Udayana (king of Vatsa) during his campaign of conquering the whole earth.

The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Rumaṇvat, is a famous Sanskrit epic story revolving around prince Naravāhanadatta and his quest to become the emperor of the vidyādharas (celestial beings). The work is said to have been an adaptation of Guṇāḍhya’s Bṛhatkathā consisting of 100,000 verses, which in turn is part of a larger work containing 700,000 verses.
