In Greek mythology, the Cabeiri, were a group of enigmatic chthonic deities. They were worshiped in a mystery cult closely associated with that of Hephaestus, centered in the north Aegean islands of Lemnos and possibly Samothrace —at the Samothrace temple complex— and at Thebes. In their distant origins the Cabeiri and the Samothracian gods may include pre-Greek elements Hittite, Thracian, proto-Etruscan, or Phrygian elements. The Lemnian cult was always local to Lemnos, but the Samothracian mystery cult spread rapidly throughout the Greek world during the Hellenistic period, eventually initiating Romans. The ancient sources disagree about whether the deities of Samothrace were Cabeiri or not; and the accounts of the two cults differ in detail. But the two islands are close to each other, at the northern end of the Aegean, and the cults are at least similar, and neither fits easily into the Olympic pantheon: the Cabeiri were given a mythic genealogy as sons of Hephaestus. The accounts of the Samothracian gods, whose names were secret, vary in the number and sexes of the gods, usually between two and four, some of either sex. The number of Cabeiri also varied, with some accounts citing four (often a pair of males and a pair of females) of them, and some even more, such as a tribe or whole race of Cabeiri, often presented as all male. The Cabeiri were also worshipped at other sites in the vicinity, including Seuthopolis in Thrace and various sites in Asia Minor.

Cabeiri

Also Known as: Cabiri; Cabyri; Kabeiroi

The Cabeiri were subjects of an ancient Mystery tradition. They remain enigmatic and mysterious today. The three Cabeiri brothers, spirits of fertility, smithcraft, magic, and the sea, are venerated alongside Hephaestus, who may be their father or grandfather, and their mother Cabeiro.

Because little of their mythology survives, the Cabeiri may seem to be minor deities, but they were not. Their Mysteries at Samothrace were second only to those at Eleusis. Endangered sailors invoking their protection called them “great gods”. Allegedly the Cabeiri protect against shipwreck and drowning.

The Cabeiri werevenerated on the Greek Mainland, at Thrace and in Phrygia in what is now modern Turkey, but the epicenter of their veneration was the Northern Aegean islands of the Lemnos and Samothrace, which were not originally ethnically Greek but were conquered and colonized by Athens starting in the sixth century BCE. Devotion to the Cabeiri predated the arrival of the Greeks and was adopted enthusiastically.

Their origin is unknown. Cabeiri is not a Greek name but is generally believed to be Lemnian, a now extinct language possibly related to Etruscan. Another theory suggests that they are named after and maybe come from Mount Cabeiros in what is now modern Turkey, once a center of devotion to Kybele. Yet another theory suggests that Cabeiri is a Sumerian or Semitic name.

Manifestation: The Cabeiri are described as “dwarfs”.

Rituals: Because the Cabeiri were the subject of Mysteries, much information is lost. What  survives are descriptions of raucous rituals, involving drinking lots of wine out of special ceremonial cups decorated with images resembling the Egyptian deity Bes with a big, erect phallus. Cups were eventually smashed as a part of the ritual.

Emblem: Phallic symbols

Animal: Crab (their pincers resemble smith’s tongs)

Offerings: The Cabeiri are allegedly heavy consumers of wine; also first fruits of the season; metal smith’s tools; phallic images
