He is not only an ancient deity of sacred promises, he’s also one of the Sun Gods known as the ADITYAS.
He became a colleague of VARUNA and now shares the task of keeping law and justice. He is invoked when oaths are sworn and with a thousand eyes (stars) at his command he can easily spot oath-breakers and liars.
His light shines far and wide. In ancient Persia (modern Iran) he became MITHRA, the second-in-command of AHURA-MAZDA. He was also reconstituted by the Romans in cult form as MITHRAS.
