A vast Dragon or serpent that is large enough to drink all the waters of the earth. It lives in the mountain range that surrounds the world according to Indian myth. At one time when it drank all the waters of the world, the god Indra found Ahi in the mountains and slew it releasing all the waters again. This story may be symbolic of how water is frozen at Winter and melts back to water during Spring. The Ahi is known for stealing women and cows and endangering fertility. It is similar to Vritra.
