Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Rathin (रथिन्) refers to “charioteers” (i.e., drivers of chariots), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.38 (“Description of the dais or maṇḍapa”).—Accordingly, as Himavat prepared the wedding of Menā and Śiva: “[...] Chariots were driven by charioteers (rathin), other vehicles by other drivers. There were foot-soldiers too. All of them were artificial. O sage, Viśvakarman was so delighted that he made all these things to fascinate the visiting dignitaries, the gods and the sages. O sage, the statue of Nandin, at the portals, of crystalline purity and brilliance, was a prototype of the real Nandin. Above that there was the celestial chariot Puṣpaka decorated with sprouts. It shone with gods represented therein. [...]”.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index
