Dunsany, L. (n.d.). Chubu and Sheemish. Retrieved from

Excerpt: It was the custom on Tuesdays in the temple of Chu?bu for the priests to enter at evening and chant, ?There is none but Chu?bu.? And all the people rejoiced and cried out, ?There is none but Chu?bu.? And honey was offered to Chu?bu, and maize and fat. Thus was he magnified. Chu?bu was an idol of some antiquity, as may be seen from the color of the wood. He had been carved out of mahogany, and after he was carved he had been polished. Then they had set him up on the diorite pedestal with the brazier in front of it for burning spices and the flat gold plates for fat. Thus they worshipped Chu?bu.
