Quick Reference

Name applied to a native Celtic deity recorded in Roman times, often translated as ‘the Great One’. The widespread instances of inscription, from north Britain through eastern Gaul to what is now Germany, plus the wide variety in spellings, Mogunos, Mountus, Mogtus, etc., suggest to some commentators that Mogons may have been a title applied to several deities, such as Belatucadros or Cocidius, rather than the signifier of a single god. His name is sometimes linked with the north British god Vitiris. The name Mogons is discussed by Kenneth H. Jackson, Language and History in Early Britain (Edinburgh, 1953), 444.
