of the BEAR - Artaius was the bear god of Gaul,
particularly in present-day Switzerland. The Romans
identified Artaius with Mercury. Bern, the capital
of Switzerland is named after the Bear. Some scholars
believed that King Arthur (Arth is Welsh for Bear)
may have originally been a god, and was derived
from the Gallic god Artaius.
