The paper presents a small text in the Sarāwānī dialect of Baluchi about the famous hero Hoseyn-kord. The Baluchi story is a well-known episode from the cycle of Hoseyn-kord-e Shabestari, where the hero shows his supernatural strength and gains a high social status. At the same time, for the Kord tribe in Iranian Baluchistan, Hoseyn-kord is not only a folkloric personage, but features already as an eponym, the legendary forefather of the tribesmen.
