Who knows? He ends up killing the gods so his devotion to Orlanth is somewhat suspect...

KoS p24 is Argrath's Saga which also claims that he summoned Wyverns to defend the Cradle at Corflu and is not wholely reliable. The CHDP mentions both Minaryth Purple and Orlaront Dragonfriend as being present. However the two are companions of Kallyr (KoS p235) and do not appear in the list of Argrath's companions (KoS p189). Ergo the odds are that Argrath is credited with something he didn't do.
