arcanānas अर्चनानस्

Definition: In one passage of the Rigveda the gods Mitra- Varuna are besought to protect Arcanānas. He is also in­voked with Syāvāśva and several other ancestors enumerated in the Atharvaveda. He appears as father of śyāvāśva in the Pañcavimśa Brāhmana. The later tradition makes him play a part in the legend of his son’s wedding, which Sieg endeavours to show is known to the Rigveda.
