An inscription with the name of god Telo

Telo is a Celtic god, the eponymous spirit of Toulon in the Var. He was the deity of the sacred spring around which the ancient settlement sprang up. A series of dedications to Telo come from Périgueux nearby: on three of these Telo is invoked with another deities: the goddesses Sianna (in 3 inscriptions)[1][2][3] and Vesunna (in one inscription).[4][5] The etymology of the deities Telo and Sianna is closely related to the Roman Apollo and Diana.[6][7][8]
