[EN] The inscription "Sena[e] on" a small votive altar from Saint-Bertrand de-Comminges is interpreted as a further instance of the Old Celtic theonym SENA «The Old One», which we find worshipped under various forms in Britain, Gaul, Noricum and Spain, and to which, according to Pomponius Mela, an important sanctuary was dedicated on the Ile de Sein in front of Point du Raz (Dép. Finistère).
