Amirani

 

(“child of the sun”), a hero of the very ancient Georgian popular epic poem Amiraniani. Amirani liberates the people from the mythical Dev monsters, teaches the people how to make fire and process metal, and engages in singlehanded combat with sky-dwelling creatures. God punishes him cruelly by chaining him to a rock in the Caucasus mountains. According to data furnished by ancient Greek writers, the myth of the theomachist existed in Georgia in the fifth and fourth centuries B.C. Tales of Amirani merged with the myth of Prometheus. As many as 120 variants of the epic poem have been written and published.
