PTS Pali-English dictionary The Pali Text Society's Pali-English dictionary
Mutoḷī,[?] a doubtful word occurring only in one stock phrase,viz.“ubhato-mukhā m.pūrā nānā-vihitassa dhaññassa” at M.I,57 (vv.ll.putoḷi,mūṭolī)=III,90 (mūtoḷī)=D.II,293 (T.mutoli,v.l.muṭoli; gloss K pūtolī).The Dial.II.330 trsl.“sample bag” (see note on this passage; with remark “spelling uncertain”).Neumann,Mittlere Sammlung I.101 trsls “Sack.” ‹-› Kern,Toev.s.v.mutoḷī tries to connect it with BSk.moṭa (Hindi moṭh),bundle,which (with vv.ll.mūḍha,muṭa,mūṭa) occurs only in one stock phrase “bharaiḥ motaiḥ piṭakaiḥ” at Divy 5,332,501,524.The more likely solution,however,is that mutoḷī is a distortion of puṭosā (puṭosa),which is found as v.l.to puṭaṁsa at all passages concerned (see puṭaṁsa).Thus the meaning is “bag,provision-bag.” The BSk.moṭa (muṭa) remains to be elucidated.The same meaning “provision-bag” fits at Vism.328 in cpd.yāna°,where spelling is T.°paṭṭoli,v.l.BB °putoḷi,but which is clearly identical with our term.We should thus prefer to read yāna-puṭosi “carriage-bag for provisions.” (Page 537)
