{"the Sky Daughter Ilmatar floated on the Earth’s waters for some 700 years when she noticed a bird that wanted to perch." ("5UCM" -- Finnish)}

{/ATHARvan/ and /AITHIRne/ are etymological cognates with Latin /ATER/ 'darkness'.}

ATHaRVaN rubbed a waterlily-blossom (R.V 6:16:13 -- SERVM, p. 106); blossoms often symbolizing a woman's genital secretions.

A woman who had just given birth was sought sexually by AITHiRNe in Muman (LI, s.v. "Aithirne", p. 10a).
