personally, I see this one as proof that there was a close relationship between Celtic and Greeks gods:
"Those include a bronze wine cauldron decorated with relieves of Greek gods and Lions, and an amphora in ceramic adorned with images of Dionysus, the Greek god of wine." 1lt

France: Lavish 2,500-year-old Celtic prince's tomb unearthed is 'extraordinary' discovery

French archaeologists have found what they say is the "extraordinary" tomb of a Celtic prince who lived some 2,500 years ago.

The burial site, which at 40m (130ft) of diameter is one of the largest from its period ever to be unearthed, was discovered in an industrial area near Troyes, about 150km south east of Paris.

A team with National Archaeological Research Institute (Inrap) that has been working on the site since October said it contained a remarkable amount of artefacts, some believed to be of ancient Greek and Etruscan origins.
