Dewing Uschinge

by Aldis Putelis
The Latvian god of horses. One of the deities called by name by Joannis Stribingius in his account of travel to forgotten lands of eastern Latvia. A somewhat corrupted form of better known Usins. Stribingius describes him as a god of horses exclusively, while there have been attempts to explain Usins as a deity of bees or light (e.g., Biezais, Haralds. Lichtgott der alten Letten. Uppsala, 1976).
