The main purpose of this paper is to construct the p-adic realization of the classical polylogarithm following the method of Beilinson and Deligne as explained by Huber and Wildeshaus. A simplicial construction of the p-adic polylogarithm was previously obtained by Somekawa. In this paper, we will give a sheaf theoretic interpretation of this construction. In particular, we will give an interpretation of the p-adic polylogarithm as an object in the p-adic analogue of the category of variation of mixed Hodge structures. We will also calculate the restriction of this object to torsion points, and will prove a result which is compatible with the results of Gros-Kurihara, Gros and Somekawa.
