Gods And Goddesses: Sucellus

Sucellus is the god of agriculture, prosperity, good fortune and of alcohol. He is known for carrying a hammer and a large pot thought to contain beer. His name means “Good Striker” thought to be a direct reference to the long handled hammer which he wields.

Sucellus is often depicted as a bearded man with his long handled hammer or with a pot. His wife, Nantosuelta, is sometimes depicted with him.
