atharvan The name in the singular denotes the head of a semi-divine family of mythical priests, of whom nothing his­torical can be said. In the plural the family as a whole is meant. In a few places an actual family seems to be referred to. Thus, for instance, they are mentioned as recipients of gifts in the Dānastuti (‘ Praise of Gifts ’), of Aśvattha’s generosity; their use of milk mingled with honey in the ritual is referred to f and a cow that miscarries (ava-tokā) from accident is dedicated to the Atharvans, according to the Taittirīya Brāhmana.
kabandha atharvaṇa Is mentioned in the Brhadāranyaka Upanisad along with Sudhanvan Añgirasa, as a teacher, but is semi-mythical. His son was Vicārin Kābandhi.
dadhyañc atharvaṇa Is a purely mythical sage. In the Rigveda he is clearly a divinity of some kind, but in the later Samhitās and the Brāhmanas he is metamorphosed into a teacher. In the Pañcavimśa Brāhmana he is by oversight called an Añgirasa.
