Ariyālaṅkāra

There were four elders of this name in Burma, all famous for their Pāḷi scholarship. The first (Ariyālaṅkāra of Ava) excelled in dhātupaccayavibhāga, i.e. was an accomplished grammarian (Sās.p.106‑12). His pupil, Ariyālaṅkara the younger, is credited with exegetical works on the Aṭṭhasālinī, the Saṅkhepavaṇṇanā, the Abhidhammattha­vibhāvanī and the Vibhaṅga. He also wrote a Pāḷi Subcommentary (ṭīkā) called the Sāratthavikāsinī on the Kaccāyanabheda, and he made in Burmese what amounted to a revised edition of Kaccāyana’s grammar (Sās.p.110‑11; Bode, op.cit., 52‑3).

The two others do not seem to have written any works that have been preserved.
