1. Ālamba.– Probably the name of a divine musician, one of a large number who wait on Sakka and on his wives (Vv., pp.16, 47). Dhammapāla (VvA.96) quotes this view and objects to it, saying that the name is not that of a musician but of a musical instrument. The opinion that the name denotes a celestial musician seems, however, to be the right one. For a discussion see Hardy: Vimānavatthu Commentary (P.T.S. Ed.), 372‑3.
