Abelio (or Abellis)

Abelio (Or Abellis)

was a deity of the ancient Gauls. Mention is made of him on a few Gailic altar inscriptions found near Comminges, in France. Sometimes he is compared to Mars, at other times to Apollo of the Romans. The word has been derived by some from Bel, the Baal of the Old Test.
