ARTIO (Continental, Anglo-Celtic) A bear Goddess of abundance, strength and the harvest. This bear Goddess was the consort of Essus. A shrine to her once stood in what is now Berne, Switzerland. Like Eostre, she was probably once a Teutonic deity. She is depicted as being surrounded by full baskets and animals, therefore it can be surmised that she was a fertility and harvest Goddess, and a Goddess of wildlife.
