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,
E'en like a pebble from the practised sling.

Southey: Curse of Kehama, xvi. 2.
