Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the copper plate certificates versus stone inscriptions. The inscriptions of Maharashtra, which can be attributed to the reign of Rāṣṭrakūṭas, are almost engraved on foundation charters in Sanskrit, which showed a high degree of typological and terminological standardization. In North Karnataka, however, an image provides completely different sources of Rāṣṭrakūṭa time. In this region, Sanskrit-copper plate records had not shown the typical epigraphic medium even in the early Western Calukyas of Vātāpi. Even among the Rāṣṭrakūṭas more inscriptions were engraved in stones than in copper plates. The Śilāhāras and the Yādava were apparently anxious to continue the traditions of unifying Rāṣṭrakūṭas in the Sanskrit inscription culture. The typical royal foundation inscriptions of the Rāṣṭrakūṭas, Śilāhāras and the Yādava Dynasties consist of sets of three equal copper plates. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Śilāhāras; copper plate certificates; early Western Calukyas; Rāṣṭrakūṭas; stone inscriptions; Vātāpi; Yādava
