1. Nalamāliya Thera
An arahant. Once he gave a fan, made of reeds, to
Padumuttara Buddha, who praised his gift. He became king many times under the
name of Subbata and eight times under that of Māluta (Ap.i.143f.) He is probably
identical with Kutivihāriya Thera (ThagA.ii.131).
2. Nalamāliya Thera
An arahant. Thirty one kappas ago he saw Sikhi Buddha and
gave him a garland of reed flowers (Ap.ii.412). He is probably identical with
Dhaniya Thera (ThagA.ii.347).
