Tomor

:"See also Mount Tomor"

Tomor was the king of gods in the Albanian folklore. He was the father of both gods and humans. His consort was a mysterious goddess referred to as "Bukura e dheut". He was attended to by wind-spirits.

In medieval Albanian he was referred to as "En", and his name survives in "enjtë", the Albanian word for Thursday.

The cult of Tomor has been linked to romantic nationalism from many Albanian writers and is most likely brimming with fictitious additions [A Dictionary of Albanian Religion, Mythology and Folk culture,page253,by Robert Elsie,2001] .
