Vahagn

by John McCannon
God of wind and weather in ancient Armenia's pagan pantheon; he corresponds to the Iranic deity Verethragna. Vahagn is also the god of victory and a symbol of great courage. His epithet Visapakal has been interpreted to mean either "dragon-choker" (a slayer of dragons) or "drawer-up of dragons" (a metaphoric description of one who summons thunderstorms). Vahagn is also associated with the element of fire, and typically appears with flames in the place of hair.
