kaṇva Is the name of an ancient Rsi repeatedly referred to in the Rigveda and later. His sons and descendants, the Kanvas, are also often mentioned, especially in the eighth book of the Rigveda, the authorship of that book, as well as of part of the first, being attributed to this family. A descendant of Kanva is also denoted by the name in the singular, either alone or accompanied by a patronymic, as Kanva Nārsada and Kanva Srāyasa, besides in the plural the Kanvas Sauśra- vasas. The Kanva family appears to have been connected with the Atri family, but not to have been of great importance. In one passage of the Atharvaveda they seem to be definitely regarded with hostility.
praskaṇva Is the name of a Rsi who is credited by the Anukramam (Index) with the authorship of certain hymns of the Rigveda, where he is mentioned several times. The statement in the śāñkhāyana śrauta Sūtra that he obtained bounty from Ppsadhra Medhya Mātariśvan is apparently a blunder.
