Potthakuṭṭha

A Damiḷa in the service of Aggabodhi IV. He erected and endowed the Māṭambiya-padhānaghara, and built houses in the Kuppurā-pariveṇa, the Kurundapillaka-vihāra and the Mahārājaghara. Whem the king died, he administered the kingdom, threw the sub-king Dāṭhāsiva into prison and set Datta of Dhanapiṭṭhi on the throne. When Datta died, Potthakuṭṭha had Hatthadāṭha crowned king. Later, when Mānavamma rebelled against him, he ate poisoned food, provided by his friend, the chief of Merukandara, and died. Cv.xlvi.19, 39, 44; xlvii.55, 61.
