Nantosuelta

Nantosueltia Carnutian Nemeton

Tegos Carnution (House of the Carnutes) Deuoi.

Her name has a few possibilities. Sun warmed valley and Meandering brock. She is depicted with a saucer or a pot which could be an evocation of the great cauldron. She also has a long pole with a house on it or beehive, and sometimes she is depicted under the sun. This could be implying prosperity, well-being, and domesticity as she gives us the gifts of the earth. She also is seen to have ravens evoking associations with death. Also seen with her are birds, cornucopia. She represents fertility, home, wealth, wisdom, life, death, war, and peace. Her consort is Sucellus.

We only have one Inscription of her. There are plenty of depictions that resemble the one below.

She is the goddess commonly associated with the funeral rites, the one who lays you down for the great sleep, guiding you down the great river to the underworld. She is a comforting, loving ~ Dêuâ.

She is very much an earth goddess, giving us prosperity in life and guiding us in death.
