A Demon of Arabic belief. According to ancient Arabic beliefs every year a star appears in the summer sky, which releases the waters stolen by the Demon Aposha. When Aposha steals the waters from the Earth draining it, Tishtrya transforms into a white horse with a golden harness to attack the Demon. Aposha morphs into a black horse without hair. Tishtrya is temporarily beaten but comes back for another fight to vanquish the Demon and release the waters to Earth again.
