Mispelling of the word 'Shaitan'(Shaytan) from the Arabic for adversary. Also the Islamic version of Satan.
Was once know as Lucifer, ''The light of heaven'', in Christian dogma.
''He soon discerns, and weltring by his side
One next himself in power, and next in crime,

And thence in Heav'n call'd Satan, with bold words
Breaking the horrid silence thus began.''
