Initially attributed to Maharaja Hastin (ca. 475-515) of the Parivrajaka family by Rapson (1897) and Mitchiner (1979), but recent researches by Fishman and Todd suggest that the "Rana Hastin" was an honorific title of an unknown 10-11th century ruler of the Chaulukya feudatory in Gujarat or Rajasthan, especially since his coins are found hundreds of kilometers away from Bundelkhand, the domain o the Parivrajakas.
