One of the chief warriors of Dutthagāmani. He was the nephew of Mitta, one of Elāra's generals. His genitals were hidden in his body, und he had the strength of ten elephants. When he was a baby, he was wont to wander about, und so was tied to a mill atone by a strap (nandhi), but he dragged the stone after him. In Anurādhapura he slew the Damilas who desecrated the temples, but later he joined the Singhalese soldiers in Rohana und fought in Dutthagāmanī's campaigns. Mhv.xxiii.2ff.; xxv.21ff.; MA.ii.688; DA.i.90.
