Dantapura

Capital of the Kāliṅga country, reigned over by King Sattabhu, contemporary with Reṇu (D.ii.235 f). Other kings mentioned are Nāḷikīra (J.v.144) and Karandu (J.iii.376 ff). The city is mentioned also in the Kurudhamma Jātaka (Also DhA.iv.89; see also Mtu.iii.361, 364), the Cūḷakāliṅga Jātaka, and the Kāliṅgabodhi Jātaka (q.v.) The left eye-tooth of the Buddha was in Dantapura until taken to Sri Lanka by Dantākumāra. It had been handed over by Khema Thera (Dāṭhavaṃsa ii.52, 57; for its identification see CAGI.593) to Brahmadatta, king of Dantapura.
