Basan (or Basanwow)
Basan (Or Basanwow)
in Norse mythology, was a king and priest of the Sigambers, wise, and possessing the most useful attributes, but too desirous of conquest for a priest. He conquered, from B.C. 264-to 240, every king of Britain, and received the title of the Great Basan. Having spent his life in idol-worship, he was worshipped after death as a god of war, and his fame was celebrated in all the songs of the ancient bards.
