Piyā

The eldest of the five daughters of the third Okkāka, her mother being Hatthā. She developed a skin disease, and her brothers, not wishing to be near her, took her into the forest and left her near a pond. There she met Rāma, king of Bārāṇasī, who, afflicted with a similar disease, was living in exile in the forest. After hearing Piyā’s story, he married her, and they had thirty-two children, who became the ancestors of the Koliyā. SNA.i.352 f., 355 f; DA.i.258; MT.131.
