Śāṭaka (शाटक) refers to a “silk saree” (a typical Indian women’s garment), which is mentioned as an item of wealth in order to demonstrate the wicked nature of gambling (durodara), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.1.17.—Accordingly, “[...] O mistress! where is that gambling rogue of a son, Guṇanidhi? Or let it be. Why should I ask for him? [...] Where is your silk saree (śāṭaka) red like madder (māñjiṣṭha) which I had presented to you and which used to hang down here in the house always? Tell me the truth. Do not be afraid. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.
