devana Is mentioned once in the Rigveda in connexion with dicing. The word must designate the place on which the dice are thrown (elsewhere called Adhidevana), and it is so explained by Durga in his commentary on the Nirukta.
devanakṣatra ‘Asterism of the gods,’ is the name applied in the Taittirīya Brāhmana to the first fourteen lunar mansions, which are said to be south, while the others are called Yama- naksatra, ‘asterisms of Yama/ and are said to be north. See Naksatra.
adhidevana The place where the dice were thrown is thus designated in the Atharvaveda and the Satapatha Brāhmana, according to Luders. Roth, followed by Whitney, takes it to mean ‘ gambling-board.’ See Aksa.
