Caturix is a Celtic god worshipped in Gaul. His name likely translates to “battle king,” identifying him as a war-god. He may as well have been a tribal protector deity.

He was sometimes identified by the Romans with their god Mars by way of the interpretatio romana.


Caturix received votive and dedicatory offerings from his worshippers; otherwise little is known of the specifics of his cult.

Caturix’s name may have been derived from the Proto-Celtic *katus or “battle” and *rigs or “king.”

Tribal and other associations
I’ve seen it suggested that Caturix may have been the god of the Caturiges tribe, who were located in south-eastern France on the south-western end of the Alps.

Caturix was worshipped primarily in what is now the Swiss Alps..
