Ritona (Pritona) is a Celtic goddess worshipped in Gaul. She may be a water-goddess; her name may derive from the Celtic word for “ford or water-crossing,” which could also suggest an association with travel or commerce.
Ritona received votive and dedicatory offerings from her worshippers; otherwise little is known of the specifics of her cult.
Ritona’s name may have been derived from the Proto-Celtic *fritu or “water-ford.”
Ritona was worshipped in central Gaul, in what is now France and Germany.
