Origin of the name SELISUC.
Etymology of the name SELISUC.
Meaning of the baby name SELISUC.


SELISUC.  This is a legend of a coin of Gallia Belgica, and is without doubt of the mythological class, since it has upon it a figure with wings for arms, and a somewhat close resemblance to the one on a Gaulish coin, and recognized by M. de la Saussaye, in an excellent dissertation in the Revue Numismatique for 1842, p. 165, as that of the Druid Abaris, mentioned by Hecataeus.  The etymology is thus, Sel-y-suc, or, as it might be nearly in modern Welsh, Seliad-y-soccyn, i.e., "the arch boy, urchin, or sprite."  It would appear from this etymology, that the figure here represented was of the nature of the numerous sprites worshipped by the Celts, under Druidical sanction, as Nedic Nar mentioned in the Gododin, stanza 62, and others similar. (Celtic Inscriptions on Gaulish & British Coins, Poste, 1861)
