Who is ApamNapat?

Apam Napat is a deity who appears in both Indian and Persian mythologies. The name literally means “son-of-waters“, and is referring to a form of Agni, the God of fire. Since fire sometimes results from a thunder-strike accompanying a downpour, fire is said to be an offspring of water. This deity is celebrated in [R.V.2.35].
