Vema.—In the temple of Rāmaliṅgeśvara at Kandukūru, Nellore District, wherein it is stated that the victorious king Vema, the son of Anna-bhūpati of the Paṇṭa family glorified the age of Kali into that of Kṛta-yuga. King Vema referred to in this inscription is no doubt identical with Anavema of the inscription at Śrīśaila.
