Matunos (Matunus) is a Celtic god worshipped in Britain; given his name, he is likely to have been associated in some way with the bear. (Other Celtic bear-gods included Artio, Andarta and Artaius, whose names derived from *arto, a different word for “bear.”)
Matunos received votive and dedicatory offerings from his worshippers; otherwise little is known of the specifics of his cult.
Matunos’ name is likely to have been derived from the Proto-Celtic *matu or “bear.”
Matunos is known from an inscription found at Risingham in Britain, north of Hadrian’s wall; he may also have been worshipped in Gaul, near what is now Langres, France.
The city of Langres, France was known in Roman times as Andematunnum.
