Patiṉeṇkīḻkaṇakku (Tamil: பதினெண்கீழ்கணக்கு) is a collection of eighteen poetic works created during the 'post Sangam period' (between 100 - 500 CE). The poems of this collection differ from the earlier works of the Patiṉeṇmēlkaṇakku, which are the oldest surviving Tamil poetry. The poems are written in the venpa meter and are relatively short in length. Most of the books deal with morals and ethics

Pathinenkilkanakku contains the following books:
