Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Mathita (मथित) refers to “(being smashed) by the maces”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.7 (“Commencement of the War”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Wounded and killed by great weapons, hundreds and thousands of heroic soldiers fell on the ground. The arms of some were cut off by terrible blows from swords. Others lost their thighs in the battle of those honourable, heroic people. The entire body of some was smashed (mathita) by the maces; the chests and hearts of some were pounded by iron clubs; some were felled to the ground by spears and dragged with nooses. [...]”.
