Ārtnī denotes the end of the bow to which the bow-string (jyā) was attached.[१] The string was not normally kept fastened to both ends of the bow, but when an arrow was to be shot it was strung taut.[२] On the other hand, the legend of the death of Viṣṇu, told in the later Saṃhitās[३] and Brāhmaṇas,[४] expressly contemplates his leaning on his strung bow, which cleaves his head by the sudden springing apart of the two ends when the bow-string is gnawed through.
