Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Lankājayamahālekhaka:A title conferred by Devānampiyatissa on Bodhigutta,leader of the embassy which brought the Bodhi tree from India to Ceylon.

The title was a higher one than that of Jayamahālekhaka,which was conferred on Sumitta.See Mbv.,p.164f.,for a description of the ceremony of investiture.It was,evidently,continued in later times,because one of the officers of Parakkamabāhu I.was called Lankāmahālāna (Cv.lxix.12),which appears to be a corruption of ”Lankāmahālekhakanāyaka.”
