Aulay

,

in Indian mythology, is the horse with a huge trunk, on which Baly the giant rode.

“Through these wide portals oft had Baly rode

Triumphant from his proud abode,

When, in his greatness, he bestrode

The Aulay, hugest of four-footed kind.

The Aulay-horse, that in his force

With elephantine trunk, could bind

And lift the elephant, and on the wind

Whirl him away, with sway and swing,

Eʹen like a pebble from the practised sling.”


Southey: Curse of Kehama, xvi. 2.
