This paper argues that ἐλασιβρόντας, a Pindaric epithet of Zeus, has to be interpreted as ‘guiding the thunder’. The examination of Greek phraseological material points out that a horse-riding metaphor may underlie the compound. Furthermore, Pindar knows the tradition according to which Pegasos dwells on Olympos. Eventually, on the basis of the comparative analysis, ἐλασιβρόντας turns out to be an Ersatzkontinuante for the collocation [SET IN MOTION] – [NOISE/THUNDER], expressed in Greek and Vedic by means of IE *h3er- ‘to set in motion’, cf. ὀρσίκτυπος (Pind.), sva¯nó arta (RV).
