Dylan (mythology)

Redirected from Dylan (god)

Dylan (or Dylan Eil Ton) is a sea-god in Welsh Celtic mythology, a son of Arianrhod. He was killed by his uncle, Govannon, who didn't know who he was.

Dylan was the first of the two sons born to Arianrhod. Since the moment of his birth the golden-haired boy was a creature able to swim in the ocean like a fish, and he therefore received the epithet Eil Ton ("Son of the Wave").
