God of the Carnutes tribe.
We have found the Name of this god on four inscriptions. Two are in France and two in Austria.
The First is found in Bourges(Avaricum), France from the tribe the Bituriges(Bituriges Cubi).
It reads to the Divine Augustus and to Mars Mogetius, Gracchus son of Ategnutis gladly dissolved a vow having it [the deities] well deserved).
The Second is in Orleans(Cenabum), France. From the tribe The Carnutes. It reads To God Augustus Mogetius.
The other two are found at a site called Seckau in an old Roman District of Flavia Solva in Austria.
His name could be derived by Protoceltical reconstruction as some Historians believe. Magyo meaning excellent and Eti meaning beyond. This suggests his name means he who is beyond Greatness or The most Powerful.
He is identified by Interpretatio Romana with the Roman Mars. So in order to understand him more, we must understand Mars.
Warlike God But not just limited to that role. He is the protector of the people, fields, and borders he shows us self-governance, Healer, He protects against sickness. Protects the tribe from themselves. If he must fight to protect he will. I don’t see him as a military figure only in times of need. A giver of law and order. Justice and Peace.

This one reminded me of the city of Mainz at first, but it seems to be named after Mogon, who was connected to Apollo in interpretato Romana. Thanks for the article. Quite interesting.
