Name and functions
Macrobius in his Saturnalia, calls Neto both a sun god and equivalent in Hispania to the Roman Mars and Apollo. A name Neito appears on the Celtiberian Botorrita bronze plaque. The name also recalls an Irish war god Neit whose name might be derived from the same Celtic root meaning passion or conflict.
