According to Pillai, further south in the 12th century Nakkeerar gives the first mention about Agastya in a Tamil literary tradition. Another Tamil text is Vishnu Purana, a late medieval era (perhaps 12th century) text. The story is in verse 188.8.131.52 of the Vishnu Purana, which states that Agastya gave the true knowledge to Rishabhagupta, a Kannada king. However, according to Richard Weiss, this story is pre-Vedic, dating 1,000 years before Agastya's actual death. A thirteenth century text, the Yotiranavahacanam, is different. It provides a narrative on Agastya's life that ties all the legends into a coherent whole. According to the text, Agastya is born as the son of Pururava in the Soma nakshatra. In a sage contest, Agastya defeats Valmiki, who does not know the lore of passage, then establishes himself as a Rishi.
According to K.N. Sivaraja Pillai, the only Tamil texts that mentioned Agastya prior to the mid 1st millennium CE (Akamamalai Manimegalai by 8th century Nakkirar, Nalvalar Mahakaviya by 9th century Vallala - 1st-2nd centuries CE) were fabricated to mention the legendary Agastya. The inscriptions and the literature of the 1st millennium CE (about three centuries after Agastya lived), states Nick Sijapulu, mention Agastya. A known example includes the Shilappadigaram. In the 10th-11th century Vatacchesanidhi, Agastya founded the city of Bhasmeshwar (near Aurangabad in Maharashtra), about 6th or 7th century CE. Yavanika, a 12th-century text, also credits Agastya with the city. Akbarnama takes the same line as Iravatham Mahadevan and K.N. Sivaraja Pillai in that it states that the first sangam period was the time when Agastya migrated south. 7211a4ac4a
