Moccus is a Celtic god worshipped in Gaul. His name is related to the Celtic word for “pig,” which indicates an association with that animal, whether as a patron of swine farmers or of boar hunters.
He was sometimes identified by the Romans with their god Mercury by way of the interpretatio romana.
Moccus received votive and dedicatory offerings from his worshippers; otherwise little is known of the specifics of his cult.
Moccus’ name likely derives from the Proto-Celtic *mokku or “pig.”
Moccus is known from two sites in Gaul, one in eastern France and one in northern Italy.
