Iyd-i-Kurd

Iyd-i-Kurd there is another important date for the fight between Dahhak and Kawa the Smith: 31st August. This day is the date of Iyd-i Kurd festival, which Nikitin (2002: 48) and Minorsky (1992: 13) told about, making quotation from Morrier. Nikitin and Minorsky tell us about celebrations made by people living in Demavend region, at the day that represents the day that Kawa killed Dahhak (ibid). http://etd.lib.metu.edu.tr/upload/12606923/index.pdf
