Shurdhi is a weather deity that originated from Illyrian in Albanian mythology.


Shurdhi was derived from the Albanian phrase “i shurdhët” which means “the deaf one”. The name Shurdhi was also associated with the ancient Thracian thunder deity Zibelsurdus by Baron Nopcsa, one of the founders of Albanology.


Shurdhi was believed to travel through clouds and hail storms occur upon his arrival. He is also linked to Verbti and can be resisted with noise and gunshots.
