If Prthu M is an avatara why did he take birth from a material body?

by Chaitanya CharanNovember 11, 2012

In the fourth canto, in the chapter on King Vena, it is described how King Prthu is born from the dead body of King Vena. King Prthu is a direct incarnation of Lord Visnu (4.16.2). Then should he not have a spiritual body? Why does he take a material body which has birth, disease, old age and death. Does that not put him in under the control of maha-maya?
