Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Rājagahasetthi:Evidently not a proper name,but the title of the Treasurer of Rājagaha (See,e.g.,DhA.i.232).In the time of the Buddha,the setthi was the brother in law of Anāthapindika and was a devout follower of the Buddha; he was responsible for the meeting between the Buddha and Anāthapindika (For details see Anāthapindika).He had a slave girl named Punnā (DhA.iii.321ff ) and a slave Punna,who later became a setthi,and whose daughter,Uttarā,was given in marriage to the son of the Rājagahasetthi.This latter was an unbeliever,but was later converted and became a sotāpanna.See VvA.63ff.for details.
