Vṛttabandha (वृत्तबन्ध) is the name of a text dealing with Sanskrit prosody (chandas) for which no authorship could be traced. Usually the authors mention their names, parentage etc. in the colophon of their works. But there are certain works in which, the author leaves no impression of his identity. The Vṛtta-bandha is mentioned in the “New Catalogus Catalogorum” XXXI. p. 7.
