Andeshan

Andeshan in Chaldeo-Persian religious worship, was the name of the first sacrificial high-priest, whom Nimrod appointed to the service of his fire-worship. It is said to have been he who, upon Nimrod's command, threw Abraham into the fiery oven when the latter sought to convert the king from his idolatry to the true worship. But the fire did not consume the holy man, and this miracle converted even the heart of the hardened priest.
