Rig Veda VII.76.4 says as follows:

They were the Gods’ companions at the banquet, the ancient sages true to Law Eternal. The Fathers found the light that lay in darkness, and with effectual words begat the Morning.

This particular mantra refers ancient sages as the companions of Gods.

Can we infer from this mantra that the seers, who heard the mantras in earlier Mandalas (upto 6th Mandala) of Rig Veda, belong to ancient age?
