Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Mettikā Therī:She was born in a rich brahmin family of Rājagaha and joined the Order under Pajāpatī Gotamī.One day,in her old age,while meditating on the top of a peak,her insight expanded and she became an arahant.

In the time of Siddhartha Buddha,she belonged to a burgher’s family and offered her mekhalā at the Buddha’s cetiya (Thig.29,30; ThigA.35f).She is evidently identical with Mekhaladāyikā of the Apadāna.Ap.ii.513.
