Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Yasalālaka:Younger brother of Candamukha Siva.He killed Siva at the festival sports at Tissavāpi and ruled as king for seven years and eight months (112-20 A.C.).

His gate watchman,Subha,bore a strong resemblance to him,and Tissa would sometimes deck Subha in all his royal ornaments and place him on the throne,where all the nobles of the court paid him homage,thinking him to be the king,Tissa,meanwhile,enjoying the fun,as watchman.One day,as Tissa stood at the door,laughing to himself,Subha charged him with impertinence and ordered the guard to slay him.

Mhv.xxxv.49ff.; Dpv.xxi.46.
