Dowson's Classical Dictionary
of Hindu Mythology] Son
of Yayati, by Sarmishtha, daughter of the Daitya king of Vrishaparvan. He refused
to exchange his youth for the curse of decrepitude passed upon his father, and
in consequence Yayati cursed him that his posterity should not possess dominion.
His father gave him a part of his kingdom, but his descendants became "princess
of the lawless barbarians of the north."
