This deity (also Keisuthros, Leisuthros, Seisuthros) was worshipped by the Chaldeans as a benevolent wine god. The Chaldeans were a Semitic people in southern Mesopotamia in the 1st millennium B.C. and are often mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible. Obviously the Babylonians were also referred to as Chaldeans, because King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon is named as such in the Book of Ezra. See also under wine gods and wine saints.
