Esus

by Micha F. Lindemans
"Lord" or "Master". A Celtic agricultural deity of the Essuvi (Gaul), who derived their name from him. His cult was associated with the bull (with three skulls) and he is portrayed with one. He is also represented cutting branches from trees with an axe. According to some he was a bloodthirsty god, while other regard him as a god of commerce (similar to Mercury). His consort is Rosmerta.
