Yāntin (यान्तिन्) refers to “drivers”, according to the Bṛhatsaṃhitā (chapter 10), an encyclopedic Sanskrit work written by Varāhamihira mainly focusing on the science of ancient Indian astronomy astronomy (Jyotiṣa).—Accordingly, “If the course of Saturn should lie through the constellation of Viśākhā, the Trigartas, the Chinese and the Kulūtas, saffron, lac, crops and everything of bright, red or crimson colour will suffer. If the course of Saturn should lie through the constellation of Anurādhā, the Kulūtas, the Taṅgaṇas, the Khasas, the people of Kāśmīra, ministers, drivers [i.e., yāntin—upatāpaṃ yānti ca] and bell-ringers will suffer, and friends will turn into enemies”.

Yanti, is 3rd pl. pres. of yā: see yāti.—Note. At D. II, 269 we should combine yanti with preceding visamā & sambādhā, thus forming denom. verbs: visamāyanti “become uneven” and sambādhāyanti “become oppressed or tight. ” The translation Dial II. 305 gives just the opposite by reading incorrectly.
