bird" as Yama's "messenger of death"; and one (xii. 3) to cremation of the dead. Verse 13 of this last also makes reference to the black bird, and so does xix. 57. Of the four ascribed to Bādarāyaṇi,* two (iv. 38; vii. 109) are for success in gambling.⌋

*⌊Weber suspected that the author of the Anukr. may have been a Vedantist, and that it was thus not unnatural that the name of Bādarāyaṇi should appear among his ascriptions (see above, p. 218, top). Weber derived his suspicion from a remark by the author of the Anukr. on the last verse of book iv., Brahmāṇaṁ sarvatra Jātavedābhimukhyenāstāut. If the author bases his remark upon the letter of our text (which has bráhma, neuter), let us hope that his philosophical acumen was more penetrant than his philological.⌋

Palpably fabricated ascriptions.—Not a few of the ascriptions are palpably fabricated from a word in the text. Of this kind are Up-heater and Forth-heater (Ucchocana and Praçocana) as seers of vi. 103 and 104, and Deliverance and Release (Unmocana and Pramocana) as seers of vi. 105 and 106. Strangely enough, none of these four words (or "names") occurs in any of these four hymns, but rather (the first two) in vii. 95 and (the second two) in v. 30, which latter furthermore is also ascribed to Unmocana.⌋

Alphabetical index of seer-names and of passages ascribed to them.—This Index was made by Whitney, but was carefully revised by Dr. Ryder and again by me.⌋
