Rustam's first labour: Rakhsh kills a lion
Public Notes
After his meal, Rustam releases Rakhsh's reins and settles down in a secluded thicket to rest. While he is sleeping a fierce lion appears and attacks Rakhsh. Rakhsh kills it by striking it on the head with his front hooves and then biting its neck. This is the first of the seven trials that Rustam undergoes on the seven days of his journey to Mazandaran.
