Mars Thincsus/Thingsus

A Frisian god worshipped by soldiers at Housestead, Hadrian's Wall; he is paired with Numen Augusti and the Alaisiagae, Germanic war goddesses. Some have linked his name with the Thing, the legislative assembly which was dedicated to Tyr--and such an association, though I'm not sure of the dating, is certainly along the right lines.
