Suddenly, three Georgian sisters appeared in Georgian dresses on the slope of the mountain. They were playing on the Pandur (a three-stringed lute from the highland and lowland regions of Eastern Georgia) and getting close to the battle-field with their song. The beauty and sweet song of the women surprised warriors. The commander considered them as the goddess of battle and he ordered to kill them. His army retreated. The Georgian army managed to take a great victory.
