India history and geogprahy

Khola.—(IE 8-3); HD), an official designation of uncertain meaning (Ep. Ind., Vol. IV, pp. 250, 253); probably a kind of messenger. Utpala on the Bṛhatsaṃhitā, 85. 34, explains Dūta as Gamāgamika while some Pāla inscriptions place Khola between the two; probably the same as Preṣaṇika or Dūta- preṣaṇika, a dispatcher of messengers. Note: khola is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
