The Buddhists had used the words atideva, devadeva, and even atidevadeva to describe the Buddha as one above gods, but they seem to have considered those terms inadequate and the final choice was made by the B uddhists or at least by the compiler(s) of the Milindapafiha particularly of the late strata of the text to adopt the word devatideva as the most suitable epithet to eulogize the Buddha.

The three terms denote the idea of 'king of kings'. iriija or riijiidhiriija, together with its attendant concepts must have been known to the Buddhists at a fairly early stage; at least before the time ofthe compilation of the Suttanipiita or the Theragiithii, unless the word riijiibhiriija mentioned in the Sela sutta is proved to be a later interpolation.
