Goddess Epona




The goddess of horses in Celtic and Saxon mythology.

Epona was worshipped across Gaul and Britain, and her cult even reached Rome and a few Germanic tribes.

She is mainly venerated by people whose livelihoods are dependent on horses, cattle, and hounds as a guardian of these creatures.

Shrines with whips, harnesses, or baskets of fruit representing Epona were maintained in stables and houses.

She is typically portrayed on a throne surrounded by mares or hounds in ancient art.
