|Nan Dian Subprefecture (南甸州)|
Noted as a Yun-nan "subprefecture" in the MSL. The Tian-xia Jun-guo Li-bing Shu of Gu Yan-wu notes the territory of Nan Dian as extending "east to the territory of Mang-shi, south to the territory of Long-chuan, west to the territory of Meng-yang" (Gong Yin 1985; 210). Possibly also known as Ahsing and Maing-ti (Parker 1893; 1). Tan Qi-xiang (1982; 76) depicts the seat of Nan Dian as lying on the Da-ying River, and shows its territory extending west to the Irrawaddy. For information on further Chinese sources relating to this polity, see Dao Yong-ming (1989; 237-41, 942), Fang Guo-yu (1987; 851, 867, 1066) and Gong Yin (1985; 208-10, 219, 247-48 and 1992; 628-30, 639, 643).
