Strange Gods

Nemeta was the last worshiper of the Three of Ys. Tera still worships the Gods of the land:

"'...Cernunnos, Epona, Teutatis, Those Who once were mighty here and may still keep a little, little strength to help Their last few worshippers.'"
-Poul and Karen Anderson, The Dog And The Wolf, Chapter XXIV, section 5, p. 486.

We have encountered Epona and recognize the name Cernunnos but I neither recognize the name Teutatis nor remember it from previous readings - although it is there, nevertheless. A world of myth remains to be discovered or rediscovered by rereading works like The King Of Ys. From what I do remember, an alliance between Christian and pagan forces will be necessary to silence the siren songs of Dahut, which are empowered by the Three.
