oh my god

i was looking up iranian mythology, and i found this:

Zahhāk (pronounced [zæhˈhɒːk]) or Zohhāk (in Persian: ضحاک‎) is an evil figure in Iranian mythology, evident in ancient Iranian folklore as Aži Dahāka, the name by which he also appears in the texts of the Avesta. In Middle Persian he is called Dahāg or Bēvar-Asp, the latter meaning “[he who has] 10,000 horses”.

Mount Damavand, the tallest peak in the Middle East visible from Tehran

Mount Damavand is an important mountain in the Iranian mythology. It is rarely visible from Tehran most of the times due to pollution.
