Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Ariyālankāra:There were four theras of this name in Burma,all famous for their Pāli scholarship.The first (Ariyālankāra of Ava) excelled in dhātupaccayavibhāga,i.e.was an accomplished grammarian (Sās.p.106-12).His pupil,Ariyālankara the younger,is credited with exegetical works on the Atthasālinī,the Sankhepavannanā,the Abhidhammatthavibhāvanī and the Vibhanga.He also wrote a Pāli tika called the Sāratthavikāsinī on the Kaccāyanabheda,and he made in Burmese what amounted to a revised edition of Kaccāyana’s grammar (Sās.p.110-11; Bode,op.cit.,52-3).

The two others do not seem to have written any works which have been preserved.
