Br.: "slaughter"

British Romano-Celtic

A hypothetical goddess, based on the name of the river Aeron in Cardiganshire, which means "slaughter"--Welsh aer. In early British, this would be rendered *agro-, and as most river deities in the Celtic pantheon are goddesses, it is assumed that this would also have been a goddess. However, there are no inscriptions to an Agrona that I'm aware of, and Agrona exists only in the hypothetical.
