CERNUNNOS- Celtic god of fertility, abundance, regeneration and wild animals. Worshipped widely in Roman times, but also known from Pre-Roman sites. Cernunnos means "horned one." The distribution of images show that Cernunnos was widely worshipped in both Gaul and Britain.

COCIDIUS- Celtic god who was primarily worshipped in Northern and Western Cumbria, and in the Hadrian's Wall region. A god of woodland and hunting, also a god of war sometimes depicted with a shield and spear. At Ebchester there was an inscription to Cocidius Vernostonus, (a Celtic god whose name means "alder tree"). Cocidius was sometimes equated with the Roman god Silvanus, and at other times with Mars. A Fanum Cocidi (sanctuary of Cocidius) is mentioned in in the Ravenna Cosmography; it was probably somewhere near the valley of the Irthing River, near Hadrian's Wall.

COVENTINA - Celtic goddess of a spring at Carrawburgh, near Hadrian's Wall. Although the spring had no medicinal properties, Coventina may have been regarded as a healer and water goddess. She apparently had high status, and is referred to in inscriptions as "Augusta" and "Sancta." Coventina is usually portrayed as a water nymph, naked and reclining on lapping waves. She holds a water lily, and in one depiction is shown in triplicate pouring water from a beaker.

DEA NUTRIX - A particular form of Celtic mother goddess, usually depicted sitting in a high-backed wicker chair suckling one or two children. Pipeclay statuettes in this form have been found throughout all ancient Celtic areas. Finds of these statues in graves suggest that Dea Nurix was also a goddess of renewal and rebirth. Pipeclay figurines resembling the classical Venus are also probably connected with a Celtic-Roman domestic fertility cult.

Epona was always portrayed on or with horses, and sometimes with paterae full of corn, ears of corn, baskets of fruit, a dog, and a key. Apart from her association with horses, the symbolism suggests that Epona was also associated with water, and presided over such aspects of life as fertility, healing, death and rebirth.

ESUS - A Celtic god who is known from the writings of the first-century Roman poet Lucan. Eusus is also known from inscriptions in Paris, France, and Trier, Germany.
