ⓘ Intarabus

Intarabus was a Gaulish god in the pantheon of the Treveri and some neighbouring peoples. His name is known from nine inscriptions from a relatively compact area in what are now Belgium, Luxembourg, western Germany and eastern France. He may have been the tutelary deity of one of the three pagi of the Treveri. In most cases, Intarabus is invoked alone – without any synthesis to a Roman deity, and without accompanying female deities. However, one inscription invokes him as Mars Intarabus, noting that a fanum and simulacrum of this god had been restored at Trier. Meanwhile, another inscription from Mackwiller in Alsace gives Intarabus the epithet Narius. An inscription at Ernzen in Germany has his name as tarabus, while another from Foy-Noville, invokes Entarabus in conjunction with the Genius Ollodagus.

A bronze statuette from Foy-Noville site, determined on the basis of how Intarabo Deo is in the dative case, depicts the God as a beardless, long-haired man in a tunic, draped with a wolf skin. He raised his right hand probably held a spear or some other implement, while his left hand, elongated waist, is now available.

The theatre at Echternach appears to have been devoted to Intarabus as the aedicule in Ernzen. Silver ring with engraved once again just Intarabo name in the dative case was found at Dalheim.

Name Intarabus be described as" etymologically unclear”, Xavier sooraj, however, takes the name means Entar-ABUS "entre rivière" between the rivers.

  • Treveri others, such as Iovantucarus apparently a protector of youth Intarabus Camulos, and Loucetios were identified with Mars and perhaps, by extension
  • Ancamna, Jupiter Optimus Maximus, Apollo, Intarabus and Minerva. Among the deities unique to the Treveri were Intarabus Ritona, Inciona and Veraudunus, and
