Aditya, in Hindu mythology, were the children of Aditi and Kasvapa, the twelve suns ruling the twelve months of the year. Among them, Indra is the highest, the sovereign of the entire sun-system. He is not the guide of the sun, like Matali. The names in profane history are very different from those given in the sacred poem Mahabharata'and the canonical book Bhagawata-Puraina. As Diti and Aditi are classed together, so all the children are one the sun, or the year.
Adiur (devoted to Ur), a mythical Chaldaean king, referred to by Sargon II as the founder of the dynasty. He may have been the Alorus of the Greeks.
