Deceneus

Deceneus (or Dicineus, Dekaineos) refers in The Origin and Deeds of the Goths (Getica) by Jordanes to two different men in Dacia:

  • Deceneus, the predecessor of Zalmoxis in the distant past (Getica V 39).[1]
  • Deceneus, philosopher, astronomer and advisor of Burebista (70 BC - 44 BC), given as the lawgiver of the Goths (Getica X 67-73).[2]
