Amaethon is a Celtic god of agriculture, and the son of the goddess Dôn and brother of Gwydion, associated with plowing and treants. His name means “labourer” or “ploughman”, he was responsible for the Cad Goddeu, or “Battle of Trees”, between the lord of the otherworld, Arawn, and the the Tuatha Dé Danann.

He stole a doglapwing and roebuck from Arawn, king of Annwn (the otherworld), leading to a battle between Arawn and the  Tuatha Dé Danann. Gwydion used his magic staff to turn trees into warriors who helped the  Tuatha Dé Danann win.
