Zeus Kasios (Κάσιος), an oriental god connected with Mt. Casius (Greek Kasion, mod. Jabal al-Aqra®) near Antioch (1) and from Seleucid times associated with it. In texts from Ugarit this mountain, called ṣapānu, is the abode of Ba®al, a weather-god like Zeus. Casius/Hgazzi plays a part in the Hurrian-Hittite Ullikummi myth and figures in Zeus' conflict with the dragon Typhon (Apollod. Bibl. 1. 6. 3). Zeus Kasios is also associated with a sanctuary near Pelusium.
