A devaputta.

He visited the Buddha in the company of Asama, Sahali, Ninka, Akotaka and Vetambarī, and while these all spoke in praise of their own teachers, Mānavagāmiya sang the glories of the Buddha (S.i.65, 67; Mil.242).

It is said (SA.i.101) that in his previous birth he was a body servant of the Buddha.
