place, (As. Res. Vol. VIII. p. 299.) Mr. Wilford
finds Ila, a name of the daughter of King Bharata, the fifth from
Swayambhuva, or Adam.—"Her name was Ila, or the earth: this was
also the name of the daughter of Satyavrata, or Prit'hu; for though the
earth was his wife, she also became his daughter."—And in page
318, we find "Ila to signify the earth: Ila, or Ilas, was the
son of Menu, or Noah; called also Mitra Varuna in the Puranas, or
the friendly Varuna, or Neptune." Sir W. Jones also
mentions Ila as the daughter of the seventh Menu, or Satyavrata:
he married her to the first Buddha, or Mercury, who was the son of
Chandra, the Moon; whose father was Atri, son of Brahma.—As. Res.
Vol. II. p. 127. (Hindu Pantheon, Moor, 1810)
