An elephant of the king of Kosala.

He was once very strong, but as he grew old he became weak and, one day, stuck fast in the mire. The elephant trainer, by the king's orders, went to the elephant arrayed as for battle and caused the battle drum to be beaten. The elephant's pride was roused and he rose from the mire.

v.l. Pāveyyaka. (DhA.iv.25f).
