Reply To: Celtic gods


    I’ve come across various scholarly notes and commentary that all suggest Etherún, the chief idol/god of the Britons, is none other than Taranis, which is far from implausible. So, according to whoever the original Irish scribe was, the implications is that Etherún/Taranis was the most venerated by the ancient Britons.

    It should be noted that this poem exists in different versions and may have been subject to scribal errors, interpolations and so on, nevertheless, it’s still an interesting little bit of extra information.
