Vrīhimaprabhu (fl. 1198 A.D.), bearing the official title mahāmātya-nāika, is the name of a minister of king Anantadeva, according to the “Bassein stone inscription of Anantadeva II”.

This stone inscription (mentioning Vrīhimaprabhu) was found while digging in front of the ancient temple of Trivikrama in the fort of Bassein. It records some gift (now illegible) of King Anantadeva to some Brāhmaṇa. It is dated on Monday, the 15th tithi of the dark fortnight of Mārgaśiras in the Śaka year 1120, the cyclic year being Kālayukta.
