Aveta, or a similar mother goddess, as depicted on terracotta statuettes among the Treveri
In Gallo-Roman religion, Dea Aveta was a mother goddess, also associated with the fresh-water spring at Trier in what is now Germany. Aveta is known mainly from clay figurines found at Toulon-sur-Allier in France and at Trier. These figurines show the goddess with infants at the breast, small lap-dogs, or baskets of fruit. There was a temple dedicated to Aveta in the Altbachtal complex at Trier. Her name is also known from inscriptions found in Switzerland, and the Côte-d'Or (France).
