The actual verses were transmitted orally with elaborate precautions to prevent corruption over the generations.

Is anything known as to how the names of the seers of various verses were memorized and transmitted ?

this question is not asking if there is a list currently available - it is asking were precautions taken to preserve the integrity of the list from the time of composition of the verses to recent times.

it is not a duplicate of

Is the Anukramani index of sages and deities of the Rig Veda available online?

  • Hmm.. this is just a completely out of the box unorthodox thought - maybe the names were transmitted in the same way Vedas were transmitted - orally, with elaborate precautions, especially when there are no swaras to worry about in names. – ram Mar 2 at 20:52
