The Cawdor Vase; 4th C. BCE. southern Italy,now in the Soane Museum. If you look at the center of the vase, it features Jupiter on a column, lighting in his right hand, a wheel in his left. This iconography is usually associated with Taranis, but this artifact is from the wrong place and time for that association here; also, it's within the context of the Greek story of Oinomaos and Pelops.

Sucellus Walters Art Museum description: "Sucellus was a major Gaulish deity associated with the underworld, whose attributes include his wolf-skin garment, a mallet or hammer (now missing from his upraised hand), and a small jar called an "olla." ... Behind him, like a symbol of worship, appears an oversized mallet with five smaller mallets radiating from it. The statuette was excavated from the "lararium" (household shrine) of a Roman house in France."

Smetrios or Smetrius was the Gallic god of war. Smetrios was the tutelary deity of the Treveri. It is possible that Smetrios is not a name of individual god, rather that it is a title or epithet used by several Gaulish gods, such as Cernunnos, Esus and Tarvus Trigaranus. Smetrios was said to be depicted as a bearded god holding a rearing snake in one hand, while the other hand held either a club or a firebrand. Smetrios has been identified with the Roman god Mars (Ares) and Hercules

Ogmios was a Gallic god known for his strength. The Romans identified Ogmios as Hercules (Heracles to the Greeks), wearing a cloak made of lion's hide, carrying a club and bow. Ogmios also appeared as an old man who was followed by a crowd with their ears attached to his mouth by a golden chain. This was to indicate he was the god of eloquence, keeping the crowd spellbound with his oratory. Ogmios was identified as the Irish god Ogma (Oghma). Ogma was the son of the goddess Danu

Pilier des Nautes, époque gallo romaine. " Cet ensemble est particulièrement remarquable parce qu’il mêle des représentations du panthéon gréco-romain, des divinités celtiques et des inscriptions qu’il faut imaginer rehaussées d’ocre rouge. Le Pilier des nautes constitue l’un des rares documents sur la mythologie gauloise qui soient parvenus jusqu’à nous." Lire la suite ici : www.paris.culture...

“The only surviving image of Sequana is a large bronze statue of a woman draped in a gown and with a diadem on Her head who stands on a boat, the prow of which was shaped like the head of a duck. This statue can now be seen in the Museé Archeologique de Dijon. Though duck lore is scarce in later Celtic writing it may be, by association with Sequana as a healing water Goddess that the duck was also associated with healing cults.
