yāska (‘Descendant of Yaska’) is mentioned in the first two Vamśas (lists of teachers) of the Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upanisad as a contemporary of Ásurāyaiia and a teacher of Bhāradvāja. Whether Yāska, author of the Nirukta, was the same person, it is, of course, impossible to say.
vaiyāska Is read in one passage of the Rigveda Prātiśākhya, as the name of an authority on the metres of the Rigveda. Roth is clearly right in thinking that Yāska is meant.
