[441] ἑτέρῃ signifies the left hand. The other, with which “ἑτέρη” is thus contrasted, being the ‘right,’ par excellence. So “τῇ ἑτέρᾳ λαβεῖν” comes to mean to get a thing with little trouble, without having to put the right hand to the work at all. Plat. Soph.226A; cp. Hom. Od.10. 171.

οὐλαί, Attic “ὀλαί”, signifying coarsely ground barley-meal, is referred by M. Müller to root mar, and so made identical with Lat. mola, and connected with “ἀμαλδύνω”, mollis, etc., etc. Curtius would refer “οὐλαί” to root “ϝελ”, seen in “εἰλύω, ἴλλω, ἀλέω, ἀλωή”, Lat. vol-vo.
