Veteris was a Celtic god attested from many inscriptions in Roman Britain.

The dedicants were usually private individuals and were exclusively male. During the 3rd c. AD the cult was particularly popular among the ranks of the Roman army.

Veteris’ name was never linked with that of any of Roman gods, but he was invoked with another local god, Mogons, at Netherby.
