A Talmudic unit of dry capacity. Also romanized as uklah and ukhlah.

Authorities differ on its magnitude. Some say it = ¹⁄₂₀th of a kab.

“How much is an ukla? A fifth of a quarter [of a kab].”

But the value (= ¹⁄₃₂ of a kab) given in his commentary by Rabbi Shmuel ben Meir (c. 1085 – 1174) is more widely accepted.
