UKT notes :
The Vedic Rishi honoured by Gautama Buddha are 10 in number. The names given in Vinaya Pitaka of the Mahavagga (I.245) [7]:  "Atthako, Vāmako, Vāmadevo, Vessāmitto, Yamataggi, Angiras, Bhāradvājo, Vāsettho, Kassapo, and Bhagu" .

The same 10 Rishis are mentioned in Sixth Synod version of Anguttara Nikaya

UKT 160118, 160223: Skt-Dev {Ga.} घ & {Da.} ध glyphs, of c4, are so similar in shape that one can be mistaken for another. In Pal-Myan, we find a parallel similarity in {Ga.} & {Ša.}. It is also significant that {Ga.} घ & {Ga} घा almost entirely limited to the RV suggesting that there was a common language from which Pal-Myan (Mag-Myan or Mag-Asokan) are derived. It is language of {I.ži.} or {iRi.ži} or  - the Védic languagee.

In my note I have quoted Gautama Buddha's position on Rig Veda Rishis
   "In the Buddhist Vinaya Pitaka of the Mahavagga (I.245) [7] section the Buddha pays respect to Vishwamitra by declaring that the Veda in its true form *  was declared to the Vedic rishis "Atthako, Vāmako, Vāmadevo, Vessāmitto, Yamataggi, Angiras, Bhāradvājo, Vāsettho, Kassapo, and Bhagu" [ten in number] [8] and because that true Veda was altered by some priests he refused to pay homage to the altered version. [9] "

I presume the following is such an alteration. Go online and watch the following video, or watch my downloaded one in mp4 format. You'll see Bhrigu Rishi « bhṛgu» aka Bhagu kicks Vishnu Déva-god in the chest
  - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bw50p2lGNE 150531 , mp4 (link chk 160223)
In the video you'll see how Vishnu-Déva tricked the Rishi to derive the latter of his powers.
