oll adj o,ā. great,ample ; cognate withol`beyond',cf. ind-oll, gl.
ultra, Sg. 220a6 (see1 ol). The primary sense seems that of
75extension (gl. Lat.amplus, Ml. 20a3 , 92a9 ), but it is widely
used to denote magnitude in general, of size, quantity, degree,
etc. In positive degree not common as pred., and as attrib.
used more often before the subst. forming a compd. than
after it. Very common incompar., where the orig. sense of
80transcending a certain limit (size, number,etc.) often comes

court of each of the provincial kings, often to those of sub-
