alonus is a Celtic god worshipped in Britain and Gaul; his name has been translated as “god of the glade” and he may be an agricultural deity.
In one of his inscriptions the god Contrebis is mentioned as well; the link between the two has yet to be determined.
At his site in Gaul (Nimes, France) he was accompanied by a consort, the goddess Ialona.
Ialonus received votive and dedicatory offerings from his worshippers; otherwise little is known of the specifics of his cult.
Ialonus’ name may derive from the Gaulish *yalo- or “glade, clearing.”
Ialonus is known to have been worshipped at two sites, Lancaster in England and Nimes in France.
