E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
in Indian mythology, is the horse with a huge trunk, on which Baly the giant rode.   1
“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,
E’en like a pebble from the practised sling.”
Southey: Curse of Kehama, xvi. 2.
