I'm looking for the exact name and possible etymology of an ancient celtic-iberian deity roughly named "Pecosuosucivo", as I can faintly recollect. Probably linked with the town Úbeda in the province of Jaén. Any suggestions are welcome!
This name doesn't seem Celtic. It could be derived from vulgar Latin based on:
Pecus (guard) suos (acc. plural oneself) succentīvus ([those]around)
Pecus (guard) suos (acc. plural oneself) su (over, on, regarding) cibo (food)
Pecus can also derive from the Indo-European root for "livestock" but that doesn't seem to make much sense here.
The highest deity in the male trias in various Indo-European mythologies has a similar name :
- Slavic Perun (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perun)
- Baltic Perkunas (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perk%C5%ABnas)
, the female trias is always the Fates (nornir, horae, parcae, ...)
The problem is that the mythological function of these highest male deities is massively tainted by later christian influence so it is hard to tell if any mythological tradition about these deities is native (original) or not (modified later)
