Sudat (सुदत्) refers to “one having fine teeth”, and is used to describe Satī, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.20. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] with the joyous consent of Dakṣa, Śiva seated Satī on the bull and then sitting Himself on it went to the Himālayan ridges. Seated on the bull along with Śiva, the sweet smiling Satī of fine teeth (sudat) shone like a black cloud near the moon”.
