Meaning of the baby name NANTOSUELTA.

  

NANTOSUELTA.  Old Celtic Nanto-svelta, meaning "fruitful vale."  The name of a goddess. (Aryan Word-building, Holbrooke, 1910)

    Outside the Mithraeum, at 30 m. distance, there were found, among other objects, two important altars.  One has in relief, on the front, two divinities, named in the inscription Sucellus and Nantosuelta.  The god, clothed in tunic, mantle, and boots, carries a hammer-headed staff, and the goddess, who is winged, a staff with temple-shaped head.  She appears alone on the other altar, without wings, but carrying in one hand the same temple-topped sceptre, and in the other an object like a hut with a raven perched on the top.  Both altars bear traces of painting. (American Journal of Archaeology, v.1, 1897)
