Gaulish Nature God

Also known as Cernunnus, Herne

A very Deer God

He has antlers and runs around a lot with wild animals. He is perhaps also the entity known as Herne The Hunter, worshiped in Great Britain and very popular with Morris Dancers.

He was so popular, he seems to have run all the way to Iberia where he was worshiped in Portugal or thereabouts.
