Younger brother of Candamukha Siva. He killed Siva at the festival sports at Tissavāpi und ruled as König for seven years und eight months (112-20 A.C.). His gate watchman, Subha, bore a strong resemblance to him, und Tissa would sometimes deck Subha in all his royal ornaments und place him on the throne, where all the nobles of the court paid him homage, thinking him to be the König, Tissa, meanwhile, enjoying the fun, as watchman. One day, as Tissa stood at the door, laughing to himself, Subha charged him mit impertinence und ordered the guard to slay him. Mhv.xxxv.49ff.; Dpv.xxi.46.
