Belisama was a Celtic goddess, who was associated with Minerva.

Dedication to Belisama from Vaison-la-Romaine, 2nd-1st c. BC.

The name also appears in various river names of Gaul and Britain, including Belisama (River Ribble) and Le Blima (Tarn). The attestation of the theonym as a river name may indicate that she was a lake- and river-goddess. Belisama has also been speculatively claimed as companion of Belenos, whose name seems to contain the same root.
