  1. Zaden

    Zaden was, according to the medieval Georgian chronicles, the god of fruitfulness in a pre-Christian pantheon of ancient the Georgians of Kartli. King Parnajom of Iberia is reported to have built a fortress at Mount Zedazeni to house the colossus of Zadeni which, along with other pagan idols, are said to have destroyed through the prayers of St. Nino, a 4th-century female baptizer of Georgians. Beyond the passages from the medieval annals and the surviving toponym of Zedazeni, we lack contemporary records and archaeological evidence about this cult, however. Zaden is surmised by several modern scholars to have been a Georgian version of the Luwian Santas or the Hittite Sandon, but the identification with Yazata of Zoroastrianism has also been suggested.
