Verethragna

Persian - A god of victory. One of the Yazatas. This four-faced, irresistible god had ten incarnations - a wind, a goldenhorned bull, a white horse, a camel, a boar, a fifteen-year-old youth, a bird (Varagna), a ram, a buck and a man with a golden sword. As a boar, he was used by Mithra to kill his enemies. He was born in the primordial ocean and some say he overcame the demon Azhi Dahak, chaining him to Mount Demavand.
