Put your text for the new page here.

I've only just started researching Ogmios, so forgive me if I am in error, but your page on Ogmios, which redirects to Ogma, appears to have some errors.

Firstly, I'm not sure that Ogma and Ogmios can be regarded to be one and the same.

I understand that there have been several plausable suggestions that Ogmios may be a derivative of Ogma (or vice versa), however the reference to Ogmios seems to be in the context of the Celtic Gauls merging their faith with that of Roman inspiration and that this distinction should be recognised.

Secondly, I would say that Ogmios is depicted by a man whos tongue is linked to his follows ears - through his eloquence.

The imagry of the Lions pelt seems to derive from the 2nd Century AD Gauls, who cast Heracles as Ogmios - mixing the lions pelt of Heracles (Roman) with the tongue-chain-ear combination of Ogmios (Celtic). They highlighted the power of the tongue over brawn by depicting Ogmios as an old man.

I'd welcome your comments webmaster@ancienteurope.info

A few things[edit]

Your article looks good, but all three of those definitions(the reference to D&D and about the graphic design studio) should be presented cleaner. And, sign your posts, please. --Glasgallow 00:09, 22 April 2006 (UTC)
