SULIS is the Celtic Goddess of hot springs, worshipped particularly at Bath, which the Romans called Aquae Sulis (the waters of Sulis). Since her waters were seen as healing, Sulis became integrated with the Roman Goddess Minerva, Goddess of medicine. Minerva's role as Goddess of wisdom and justice was also brought over to Sulis-many inscriptions have been found which ask Sulis to intervene in disputes and punish guilty people. Sulis's name has been interpreted as either "good flooder" or "bright one", and is also seen as SUL, SULLA, SULEI, and SULIS MINERVA.
