Deity local to Godmanchester in Cambridgeshire, identified as the Roman town Durovigutum. A bronze feather has been found with the inscription:
DEO ABANDINO VATIAVCVS D S D
To the god Abandinus, Vatiacus dedicates this out of his own funds
Unfortunately, we do not know any of his characteristics, as not even interpretatio romana was employed.
I have seen a few theories that Abandinus was originally [M]abandinus, and his name related to Maponos, but I don't see why this should be.
