kauśāmbeya कौशाम्बेय

Definition: Is the patronymic (‘ descendant of Kuśāmba ’) of a teacher Proti in the Satapatha Brāhmana according to the St. Petersburg Dictionary: a view supported by the fact that Kūśāmba actually occurs as the name of a man in the Pañcavimśa Brāhmana. It is, however, possible that the word means a ‘ native of the town Kauśāmbī ’ as understood by Harisvāmin in his commentary on the Satapatha Brāhmana.
