Ahicchatta

A king of the Nāgā. He lived in the heap of sand which was made by Aggidatta (q.v.) and his followers, who had made a vow to bring from somewhere a jar of sand and empty it at an agreed spot whenever a sinful thought occurred to them. When Moggallāna visited Aggidatta and asked him for a lodging, Aggidatta refused to give him one, but Mahā-Moggallāna, in spite of his protests, occupied the sand-hill. Moggallāna overcame the power of the Nāga king by his psychic power, and when Aggidatta and his followers visited him the next morning, they found Ahicchatta standing with his hood over Moggallāna’s head protecting him from the sun. DhA.iii.241 ff.
