Bele’ses (3 syl.).
 
A Chaldean soothsayer and Assyrian satrap, who told Arba’cs, governor of Me’dia, that he would one day sit on the throne of Sardanapa’lus, King of Nineveh and Assyria. His prophecy was verified, and he was rewarded by Arba’cs with the government of Babylon. (Byron: Sardanapalus.)   1
