This is also used by NammAzhwAr in ThiruvAimozhi(5.1.1) 

"kaiyAr chakkaratthuk kaNNapirAnE enRenRu
 poiyyE kaimmai sollip puramE puramE ADi
 meiyyE peRRozhindEn vidhivAikkinRu kAppArAr
" aiyO" kaNNapirAn aRayO inip pOnAlE".

This is to my knowledge. Other members can throw light on  whether 
any other AzhwAr has used it in any other pAsuram.
