Battle of Rustam and Akwan Div

Akwan Div is the name of one of the demons of Ferdowsi Shahnameh.
The story of Akwan Div is given in Shahnameh as follows:

In the time of Kaykhosrow, an animal appears and disguises itself as a yellow zebra with a black line from the mane to the tail, and attacks the herd of the king's horses and kills the horses. Kaykhosrow realizes that this animal can not be a zebra, because the zebra is not stronger than the horse, this animal is the same as the demon Akwan that is in the grave.
Name root
According to conclusive evidence, some scholars have considered the name of this demon to be the devil of Akuman, which in Avesta Aka-manah means evil thought, and the name of the demon was the manifestation of low thoughts and evil and hypocrisy, as opposed to Wahman (Bahman).
About this demon

In the Shahnameh, the demon's eagle harms the herds of Kaykhosrow horses. In battle with this demon, Rustam disappears every time he rides on Rakhsh. In this battle, Rostam, tired, falls asleep next to a spring, and at that time, Akwan attacks him and lifts him to the ground around him and takes him to the air, and tells Rostam to throw him into the sea or the mountains ?, Rostam Knowing that the demon's work is reversed (the opposite), he chooses the mountain and saves himself "by being thrown into the water" by swimming. After finding the demon, he confronts him and mentions the name of God to defeat him so that the demon does not use magic and beheads the demon.

Mohammad Jafar Yahaghi has also mentioned in the book "Culture of Iranian Mythology" that some scholars have considered Akwan as Mene or Akuman and others have considered it as a counterpart of Chinese Deobad.
Sea storm

Some scholars trace the story of Aquanus to a tornado that suddenly rose from the sea, destroying ships and throwing them into the distance. It occurs in the Indian Ocean and the China Sea during the monsoon season, as well as off the coasts of Florida, Cuba, and Western Australia.
