CELTIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Ireland, Scotland, Wales & Gaul

DYLAN

Celtic Sea God

A Born Swimmer

As a Sea God, he didn’t make much of a splash.

The son of GWYDDION and ARIANRHOD, he leapt from mum’s arms straight into the sea. Sometime later his uncle, a Smith God called Govannon, killed him. The waves sighed. Sometimes they still do.
