C., and we are told that this king carried a bow when hunting Sambar deer (Mah., I, p. In the second century BC., Phussadeva, one of the champions or generals of Duttha-Gamini, is described as being an extraordinarily expert archer, who shot , by a flash of lightning, or through a horse-hair, or a cart filled with sand, as well as through hides a hundred-fold thick ; through an Asoka plank eight inches, an Udumbara plank sixteen inches thick, as well as a plate of iron, too, and a plate of brass four inches thick , on land his arrow would fly the distance of eight usabhas and through water one usabha, (Mah.
