Anandatus

Anandatus in Old Persian mythology. The Saki were accustomed, after the manner of the Cimmerians, to make raids into far-off countries, and went even as far as Bactriana and Cappadocia. When enjoying a feast at one time, after having returned from such an undertaking, they were surprised by Persian soldiers during the night and slain. In memory of this occurrence a rock was surrounded by a wall, inside of which a temple was built to the Persian deities Anais, Omanus, and Anandatus. Omanus is light, and Anandatus is a revelation, an incarnation of the same.
