Satana: Statue of knowledge, in the village of Beer Ajam in the Quneitra Governorate, Syria

Satana (also: Satanaya, Satanej, Satenik) is a mythological figure who appears in many cycles of the Nart sagas of the Caucasus.

Her Ossetic name is most likely of exogenous origin, in Ossetian tradition, she is the daughter of Uastyrdzhi (St. George). The Armenian historian Movses Khorenatsi wrote several legends about Queen Satenik, in which there are several plots that coincide with the Nartian plots about Satana.

She is credited with the invention of the popular drinks of the Ossetians (Alans) - beer and aluton, as well as the heady honey drink ronga. Uruzmag saw how the bird, after nibbling malt and then hops, got drunk and began to roll on the ground. He informed Satana about this and for the first time on earth she brewed beer from malt and hops.
