The Star, Sirius, that rises in the north-east; The river’s flood that brings devastation and disease; the Wizard Iachen who tames the flood and cures the disease and transfigures death into life; called I’wa’ko by the Minoans; “Light-Bearing Star of the Mysterious Night” — “The Light of Darkest Midnight” —
Sirius the Wolf — tamed, always tamed —
Ancient story. The Wolf-Tamer.
