There are many other gods whose names may betray origins as topographical spirits.

Vosegus presided over the mountains of the Vosges, Luxovius over the spa-settlement of Luxeuil and Vasio over the town of Vaison in the Lower Rhône Valley.

In the Iron Age, this same tribe issued coins with three faces, a motif found elsewhere is Gaul.

Another tribal god was Lenus, venerated by the Treveri.

He was worshipped at a number of Treveran sanctuaries, the most splendid of which was at the tribal capital of Trier itself.

Yet he was also exported to other areas: Lenus has altars set up to him in Chedworth in Gloucestershire and Caerwent in Wales.

Unsyncretised theonyms are also widespread, particularly among goddesses such as Sulevia, Sirona, Rosmerta, and Epona.

Among the divinities transcending tribal boundaries were the Matres, the sky-god and Epona, the horse-goddess, who was invoked by devotees living as far apart as Britain, Rome and Bulgaria.

A distinctive feature of the mother-goddesses was their frequent depiction as a triad in many parts of Britain, in Gaul and on the Rhine, although it is possible to identify strong regional differences within this group.

The Celtic sky-god too had variations in the way he was perceived and his cult expressed.

Yet the link between the Celtic Jupiter and the solar wheel is maintained over a wide area, from Hadrian's Wall to Cologne and Nîmes.
