Contrebis (Gontrebis) is a Celtic god worshipped in Britain, whose name has been translated as “he who is among us.” He appears to be a god of the community, a protector of his people–a god who is present in the lives of his worshippers.
In one of his inscriptions the god Ialonus is mentioned as well; the link between the two has yet to be determined.
Contrebis received votive and dedicatory offerings from his worshippers; otherwise little is known of the specifics of his cult.
Contrebis’ name may derive from the Proto-Celtic *kontrebia or “community.”
Contrebis is known from two sites in northern England.
Lancaster, England; Overburrow, England
