SLAVIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Eastern Europe and Russia...

POTRIMPO

Slavic Grain God

Also known as POLTRIMPT, POTRIMPUS, PATRIMPAS, AUTRIMPO, NATRIMPE

Handsome young God of Grain from old Prussia

Not much is known for sure about him, and now there are no old Prussians left to ask, but he may have been a fertility god as well as specializing in grain.

As depicted on the flag of King Widewuto, he wears a garland of corn ears on his head. Unfortunately he doesn’t quite carry it off and looks very silly.
