Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Suppatitthita:1.Suppatitthita.A ford,across the Nerañjarā,where the Buddha bathed just before eating the meal given by Sujātā.J.i.70; BuA.7.

2.Suppatitthita. A nigrodha tree belonging to king Koravya.The king and his court ate the first portion of the fruit as big as pipkins and sweet; the army had the second portion,the town and country people the third,recluses and holy men the fourth,and birds and beasts the last.None guarded its fruit,and none would hurt another in order to obtain its fruit.

One day there came a man who ate his fill of the fruit,broke a branch,and went his way.The deva of the tree was angry,and the tree bore no more fruit.Koravya visited Sakka and consulted him.Sakka sent a squall to punish the deva and made the deva appear before him full of repentance.Then Sakka warned him to keep the Rukkhadhamma,which was that various people take and make use of various parts of a tree; it is not for the deva of the tree to mope and pine on that account.A.iii.369f.
