Aivuli

Aivuli (Sanskrit: ऐवुलि ,  Bengali: ঐবুলি )  was a Brahmin (Brahmana) who lived around 906 CE in Hampi in North Karnataka.

In 941 CE, Aivuli's son Damaka migrated1 from Hampi in North Karnataka to a village in Balangir district of Orissa. This is recorded in the 941 AD Patna Plate of Janamajeya Mahabhavagupta I (935 - 970), who belonged to the Somavamsa family which ruled over the area around Sambalpur region of Orissa.
