Kernunnos Of Reims Here the antlered Celtic Lord of the Animals is depicted with bull, stag and a sack from which pours forth a stream of either grain or gold coins. Thus both animals and the viewer partake of the god's bounty. These symbols of fertility and abundance are balanced by the chthonic imagery of the rat above Kernunnos' head which suggests earth's fallow cycle. In this Gallo-Roman image, he is attended in his temple by Apollo and Mercury; the latter was often a representation of the Celtic deity Lugh. See Kernunnos Of Gundesrup. See Kernunnos Of Ste. Germaine
