Late Iron Age or very early Roman bronze figurine of a boar. The boar was an important symbol in both Celtic and Classical mythology, and is known on the Lincolnshire Witham shield and on silver Iron Age coinage. This realistic free-standing statuette was probably made as a votive offering. Found at Rothwell Top.
Moccus Continental god; his name means "boar" or "pig." The pig was a divine animal in Celtic myth, said to have come from the Otherworld, usually as a gift of the Lord of the Otherworld to a particularly good king. The boar hunt is as much a part of Celtic myth as the cattle raid.
