Pahagunong Sugidanon (Epics) of Panay Book 4
Author: Alicia P. Magos et. al.
The story tells about Pahagunong, deity from the upper world, who gazes down the pagtung-an (middle world) to the wide open sea. There he sees Matan-ayon, an irresistible ravishing long-haired beauty bathing by the sea coast. But he has to contend with the brave Paubari, the maiden’s guardian watching nearby. A long single fight ensues until Laonsina, a deity-arbiter from the skyworld, devises a scheme to end it.
Suguidanon is a long narrative delivered in the form of chants and tells stories about romances and battles in a maritime setting
