Public Notes
Zahhak orders his courtiers to sign their names to scroll affirming his righteous rule. The blacksmith Kava arrives before the king and complains that, having already lost 17 sons to the snakes, his last son has now also been taken from him. Zahhak sets his son free and orders Kava to add his name to the scroll.
