Vosegus

God of hunting and forest. On rare known artifacts Vosegus is shown with a bow and shield, accompanied by a dog. The central area where Vosegus was worshiped was around the Donon. On hill’s top there was a temple dedicated to Vosegus.

Later in Gallo-Roman religion, Vosegus was the patron god of the Vosges in eastern Gaul. His name is attested in about five inscriptions from western Germany and eastern France, twice in the form Vosego Silv(estri) and once as Merc(urio) Vos(ego).

Verbeia

Goddess worshiped in Roman Britain. Like so many divine figures, she is known from a single altar-stone dedicated to her at Ilkley (RIB 635). She is considered to have been a deification of the River Wharfe.

An image of a woman (also from Ilkley) may represent the goddess: she is depicted with an overlarge head and schematic features; she wears a long, pleated robe and she has two large snakes, represented as geometric zig-zags, which she grasps, one in each hand.

 

There is an amazing article about her that can be found here:
