There is a curious epithet of this #god, #vishapakagh ( #vishap -reaper or “vishap”-gatherer/harvester). Although this epithet had come to mean “vishap” ( #dragon ) killer/slayer in medieval #Armenian #literature, even as late as the #5th-century, “vishap” meant more than a “dragon” (30). One derivation of “vishap” [5] is from #Persian “having poisonous saliva” (31). Could the vishaps and possibly the enigmatic vishap-stones found in various places on the #Armenian-highlands originally have been #mushroom -related?
