A clothed Wanderer (chaṇṇaparibbājaka) (DA.iii.816), who lived in a pleasance near Anupiyā. He was a friend of Sunakkhatta (q.v.)
The Buddha once visited him, and their conversation is recorded in the Pāthika Sutta (q.v.) (D.iii.1 ﬀ).
He was evidently so called because he belonged to the clan (gotta) named Bhaggava (? potters).
