A rare inscription dating back to the RenatiChola era has been unearthed in a remote village of Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh
- The inscription was written in archaic Telugu, which was readable in 25 lines — the first side with 11 lines and the remaining on the other side.
- It was assigned to the 8th Century A.D., when the region was under the rule of the Chola Maharaja of Renadu.
- The inscription seems to throw light on the record of a gift of six marttus (a measuring unit) of land gifted to a person Sidyamayu, one of the Brahmins serving the temple at Pidukula village
