 One of the recurring issues in Iran's mythology and epics is dramatization, and what appears in some of these battles is symbols. Dragons are usually killed in the mythological and epic stories of Iran. Killing the dragon with this weapon in the myths and other epics of other indigenous and European nations also has examples that are known as the ritual of the dragon warrior. This article explains why the wand has become a ritual weapon. The wings of the mythological and epic hawks of Iran are cow-shaped. The cow, as the symbol of dignity and fertility is opposed to the dragon as a symbol of dignity and fertility against drought. This idea has made the cattle wand as a symbol of the courage and fertility of the ritual of killing the dragon as a symbol of drought; in fact, the reason for this is in the shape of the wand and its symbolism.
Keywords: Mugs, Dragons, Rhetoric, Diligent, Drowsy.
