The Cabeiri were evil demons of fire, who shook the earth and cast out fire from the depths of the earth and sea.
The Cabeiri were the protectors of sailors, the solvers of misfortunes, and the demons who punished perjury and blasphemy. Earthquakes and fires were attributed to them.
The Greek island of Lemnos worshipped the Cabeiri as gods and depicted them as pygmies, having a pronounced belly and crooked legs.
Modern scholars believe that the name Cabeiri comes from the Semitic "kavir", meaning "big".
