Title: Gebrinius  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Ancamna, Arnemetia, Robor, Atepomarus, Matronae Aufaniae
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Gebrinius is a local Celtic version of the god Mercury. In the 2nd century AD an altar was set up at Bonn to honour him. The stone depicts the god in full Roman aspect, but is nevertheless dedicated to "Mercury Gebrinius", perhaps of the name of a local divinity of the Ubii, whose cult was linked to that of the Roman god.
