Nāgapupphiya

1. Nāgapupphiya Thera.– An Arahant. In the time of Padumuttara Buddha he was a Brahmin teacher, named Suvaccha. One day he saw the Buddha travelling through the air and, marvelling at the miracle, sprinkled nāga flowers along his route. Thirty-one world-cycles ago he was a king named Mahāratha (Ap.i.179). He is probably identical with Dhammasava Thera. ThagA.i.214.

2. Nāgapupphiya Thera.– An Arahant. Probably identical with Lomasakaṅgiya (ThagA.i.84). Ninety-one world-cycles ago he saw the Buddha (Vipassi?) walking along the street and offered him nāga flowers. Ap.ii.450.
