(je ne parle pas) La Guivre a les cors de le bouc, comme sur le Gundestrup Cauldron. C'est evident que ce legende est anterieurement `a le dragon de l'Eglise. La ville "Bram" est pres du Montpellier, avec le bouc militaire du regiment (comme les gallois celtiques). Persie "bramaniya" est "religieique", et suedois "bram" est "l'etat.l'apparat". Les brahmins et les boucs sont las creations anterieurement les hommes autres. Est-ce que "Bram" est des Gauls et leur brahminism?

    Elmo,
    I was hoping to find a French person who is into Celtic stuff. Would you believe that Marseilles Museum has no web contact-email? The sons of Danu included Dagda who fathered Oengus from the Boyne of Boand, which resembles the Brahmin legend of Scythians born of the Dnieper and Don rivers, named from Danu. The viper-woman Echidna (la guivre) was mother of both Gauls and Scythians, and was a water-nymph in the Dnieper. Probably, Gauls and Gaels had Brahmin traditions, preserved in the guivre legend. I am fishing for French comments.

    hi John,
    As Elmo wrote you, it will be easier for us to translate your English text (e.g., what do you want to say by "cors": 'corne' ou 'corps' de bouc?).
    La guivre has a slighlty different meaning in French or English old stories. In both cases, the body is the one from a snake ("guivre" is similar to "vouivre" in French heraldry) but the wings, paws and feet are different.

    Guivre has goat-horns, like the horned snake on the Gundestrup Cauldron from Thrace of about 1st centBC. The Celtic warrior sculpture of 3rd centBC from Rome is wearing goat-horns, and zamarrones of Galicia wore a goat-head on their head for holy days. The regimental goat in Wales is part of ritual each year for the national day. The Echidna viper/vivre in Greek writings by Diodorus, Herodotus and Alcman, was the daughter of Brettanos of Gaul. "Dragon"<L.draco,Gk.drakon "snake". The wings and legs were medieval additions. The Roman dragon-banner in Koblenz Museum is a snake. Is there any evidence that snakes/dragons were part of Gauls' rituals?
