After referring to the fact that the Egyptian priests claimed the honour of having transmitted to the Greeks the first elements of Polytheism, he thus concludes: Kennedy objects to the application of the name “Eko Deva” to the triform image in the cave-temple at Elephanta, on hhislop ground that that name belongs only to the supreme Brahm.
