Halcyon, the god of Truth

Halcyon__the_god_of_Truth.jpg
All of the pagan religions had a notion of ultimate good, and the god Halcyon represented that good in all of them. He is best known as the god of truth, and is the child of Helion, god of light, and the sun. Halcyon was said to shed light on all that was unknown, all that was petty or evil. Halcyon is the god of the sky, and astrologers and clairvoyants pray to him, seeking his wisdom in reading the signs and the stars.

Offerings made to Halcyon were always the branch of the olive tree, which are most difficult to find in light of the destruction of the Morbihan Forest.
