Another short one today, but I’ll do Isis tomorrow to make up for it!
Nemetona is the Celtic Goddess of sacred groves and temples. She was worshipped in Britain, France, and Germany, where she stood guard over places of power, and could be invoked to bring her power to rituals performed there. She was depicted in a shrine at Bath in England with her consort, the Roman God Mars, and three hooded figures with a ram. The three hooded figures are the Cucullati, figures who were seen as protectors, and the ram is likely symbolic of an animal sacrifice.
