Earth Mythological References

When the Romans invaded and subsequently conquered Gaul, Julius Caesar observed the religion of the Gauls and equated many of the Celtic gods with Roman names instead of the native Gaullish names. The conquered and conquerors either adopted or continued to worship these Celtic gods. Camulus was associated with Mars (Ares), the Roman god of war. Hence, Camulus is the Romano-Celtic god of war.

Although the British city Camulodunum (now Colchester in Essex) was named after him, Camulus was actually the tribal god of the Remi, a Gallic tribe living in Belgium.

Camulus was said to have wielded an invincible sword.
