Satiyaputta (सतियपुत्त) is the name of a locality situated in Dakkhiṇāpatha (Deccan) or “southern district” of ancient India, as recorded in the Pāli Buddhist texts (detailing the geography of ancient India as it was known in to Early Buddhism).—Satiyaputta is referred to in Rock Edict II. It has been differently identified by different scholars. Some identity it with Satyabrata-Kṣetra or Kanchipura, others with Sātpute, still others with Satyamangalam Taluk of Coimbatore and yet others who prefer to identity it with Satyabhumi, a territory which corresponds roughly to North Malabar including a portion of Kasergode Taluk, South Canara.
