Sātavāhana

v.l. Setavāhana.– A king. It is said that when Anāthapiṇḍika’s family fell into poverty, owing to the alms given by him, a girl of the family, wishing to give alms, went to Sātavāhana’s ¹ kingdom, swept a threshing floor and gave alms with the money so obtained. A monk told this to the king, who sent for the girl and made her his chief queen.

¹ DA.i.303; is this Sātavāhana the king of the Kathāsaritsāgara i.32?
