PATRIMPAS

Prussian Plant God

Also known as Potrimpo, Potrimpas, Potrimpus, Potrympus, Potrimpt, Potrimppo, Autrimpo, Natrimpe

An unreliable Prussian Grain God

He may have been one of the Three Top Gods of old Prussian religion along with Perkunas and Patollo, but all reliable knowledge of him was obliterated centuries ago and there are no old Prussians left to ask.

The only info about him that survives is dubious and unreliable – and may even have been invented as old Prussian fan-fiction.

All we can tell you is that 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.

We imagine him as having a vegetable patch. Old Pat and his Cabbages sort of thing.
