Someśvarabhaṭṭa (fl. 1191 A.D.) is the name of a Brāhmaṇa mentioned in the “Kolhapur stone inscription of Bhoja II”. Accordingly, “...the same Kāliyaṇa Nāyaka, having purchased, from Māyiṃkauvā, the daughter’s daughter of Someśvarabhaṭṭa of the Chandoga (Sāmaveda), the northern half of a nivartana of the best land in her field on the eastern direction and within the limits of the same agrahāra village Pauva”.

This stone inscription (mentioning Someśvarabhaṭṭa) was found built into the house of Annacarya Panditrao in the enclosure of the temple of Mahālakṣmī at Kolhāpur. It records certain grants made by the king and by a private individual to certain Brāhmaṇas evidently residing at Kolhāpur. It is dated on the Uttarāyaṇa Saṅkrānti on Tuesday, the twelfth tithi of the dark fortnight of the month Puṣya (i.e. Pauṣa) in the expired Śaka year 1112, when the cyclic years was Sādhāraṇa.
