Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Sunāga:The son of a brahmin of Nālakagāma,a friend of Sāriputta before the latter left the world.Later,Sunāga heard the Buddha preach,entered the Order,and attained arahantship.

In the time of Sikhī Buddha,thirty one kappas ago,he was a brahnnin versed in the Vedas,and lived in a forest hut near Mount Vasabha as teacher of three thousand pupils.One day he met Sikhī Buddha,and,knowing by the signs on his body that he was a Buddha of infinite wisdom,he was suffused with joy,as a result of which he was born after death in the deva world.Twenty seven kappas ago he was a king named Siridhara (Thag.vs.85; ThagA.i.182).

He is evidently identical with Rahosaññaka of the Apadāna.Ap.i.166f.
