Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Ummadantī Jātaka:The story of Ummadantī.The story was related in connection with a backsliding brother who,having seen a very beautiful woman as he was going his alms-rounds in Sāvatthi,gave himself up to despair and had to be led to the Buddha for admonition (J.v.209ff).

The story is also found,with certain slight variations,in the Jātakamālā under the title of Ummādayantī Jātaka (No.xiii).

The tale of a maiden who made all who saw her mad,and of the love-smitten monarch who preferred walking in the right path and even meeting death itself to indulging in passion,is found also in the Kathāsaritsāgara.E.g.,in the 15th,23rd and 91st taranga.
