About Yima you can find much stuff in Dumezil's Mythe et Epopee II (Types
epiques indo-europeens : un heros, un sorcier, un roi). The third part of
the book studies kings  Yayaati, Yima and Eochaid Feidleich.

>Dear  Indologists  specializing  in  Indo-Iranian  studies:

>In  my  understanding,  the  Vedic  Yama  equals  the  Avestan  Yima.
>Please  tell  me  if,  later  on,  this  Yima  becomes  Jamshid  in
>Pahlavi  period?

>Also,  did  the  Vedic  Aryans  at  any  point  "curse"  Ahura  Mazda
>as  the  greatest  Asura  as  the  Avestans  did  the  devas/daevas?

>Many  thanks  in  advance  for  all  corrections  and  clarifications.
