Dear colleagues,

On p. 9 (paragraph no. 8) of his Annual Report on Epigraphy for the
year 1909-1910 (G.O. no. 665, July '10), Krishna Sastri refers to the
then-recent discovery by "H. C. P. Bell, esq.,  Archeological
Commissioner, Ceylon" of a number of Tamil inscriptions found in Śiva
and Viṣṇu temples in Polannaruwa.  Krishna Sastri goes on to report
that the "only complete record of the set was a Choḷa inscription of
the 11th century A.D. and belonged to the time of Adhirājendra".

Could anyone direct me to a published version of this record?

Thanks in advance,
