<p style='text-align: justify;'> A fragmentary 12th-century copy of the <i>Ratnamatipaddhati</i> of Ānandadatta , a sub-commentary on the <i>Cāndravyākaraṇapañjikā</i> of Ratnamati (see Dimitrov 2010a, 2014), in its turn a commentary on the <i>Cāndravyākaraṇa</i> of Candragomin with the <i>Vṛtti</i> attributed to Dharmadāsa . The manuscript contains the beginning and the end of the section covering chapter (<i>adhyāya</i>) 2, quarter (<i>pāda</i>) 1, of Candragomin's grammar. The same section is also covered by <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='http://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/MS-ADD-01705/1'>Add.1705</a>, which is almost complete. The <i>Ratnamatipaddhati</i> is unpublished and nothing is known with certainty about its author .According to Dimitrov (2014), he may have been affiliated with one of the large Buddhist universities in eastern India, such as Vikramaśīla, Nālandā, or Vajrāsana. If the <i>Pañjikā</i> was composed in the first half of the 10th c. CE, as argued by Dimitrov (2014), Ānandadatta must have flourished some time between the second half of the 10th c. and 1199 CE, which is the date recorded in the <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(5);return false;'>colophon</a> of Add.1657.2. The Cambridge University Library holds one partial copy of the <i>Cāndravyākaraṇapañjikā</i> (see Add.1657.1), containing the commentary on <i>Cāndravyākaraṇa</i> 2.2. </p>
