Bhattiprolu is a very close variant of Brahmi script. Some inscriptions were found at a site in Andhra Pradesh — on the Eastern coast of India, a bit south of the north-south center line but not yet at the southern tip of India — in 1870 AD.
The site was a stupa, which originally was a monument to house remains of the Buddha. Nine inscriptions in the Bhattiprolu script were found in the original excavation and a later (1969 AD) excavation, with an important set of glyphs on the Buddha’s urn. Most were in Prakrit, which is a vernacular form of Sanskrit, but three had some words in the Telugu language.
