Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Khalātiya Petavatthu:The story of a courtesan.She had beautiful hair which,however,she lost,owing to the machinations of a rival.She once stole clothes from some men who lay asleep,and on another occasion gave alms to a monk.She was later born in an ocean vimāna as a naked peta with lovely hair; some merchants,while going to Suvannabhūmi,saw her,and on learning her story gave clothes on her behalf to a pious man in their company,and as a result clothes immediately appeared on her.Later the merchants gave alms to the Buddha in her name,and she was born in Tāvatimsa.Pv.i.10; PvA.46ff.
