In ancient Celtic polytheism, Latis is the name of two Celtic deities worshipped in Roman Britain. One is a goddess (Dea Latis), the other a god (Deus Latis), and they are both known from a single inscription each.
The dedication to Dea Latis was found at Birdoswald Roman Fort in Cumbria, England, in 1873. It reads simply:
:"For the goddess Latis"〔Collingwood, R.G. and Wright, R.P. (1965) ''The Roman Inscriptions of Britain'' (RIB) ''Vol.I Inscriptions on Stone''. Oxford. (RIB 1897, online at www.roman-britain.org )〕
The E is written as a ||. The stone is now in the Carlisle Museum.
She is known as the goddess of water and beer.〔(Folklore and Legend - Gods and Goddesses )〕 She may have been associated with the nearby rivers.〔Dictionary of Celtic Myth and Legend, Miranda J. Green, Thames and Hudson Ltd, London, 1997〕
