> “Die Sonne war doch allzusehr eine Potenz für sich, als dass die

> H.Oldenberg *Die religion des Veda* 1894;1917:109
> “The solar aspect of Agni’s nature is not often mentioned, the sun being
> too individual a phenomenon to be generally conceived as a form of fire”.
> A.A. Macdonell  *Vedic Mythology*1897:93 (1963repr.Varanasi)
> “But this side (i.e. the solar side DB)” of the nature of Agni is little
> referred to; the sun was too great and prominent a deity to be treated
> merely as a form of Agni” A.B.Keith *RPVU* HOS 31,32; 1925: 156.
> As far as I know till now nobody drew attention to the remarkable
