In Gallo-Roman religion, Bricta or Brixta was a Gaulish goddess who was a consort of Luxovius, god of the waters of Luxeuil-les-Bains (in antiquity, Luxovium). Nicholson (1999) has suggested however that if "Bricta is a title incorporating Bríg, it may actually be a title assigned to Sirona rather than a separate goddess".
Bricta is recorded in the following inscriptions from Luxeuil-les-Bains :
(AE 1951, 00231; CIL 13, 05426)
This Gaulish theonym is derived from the word brixtom or brixta meaning a curse. The word also appears on the inscription of Chamalières. (Delamarre pp. 76–77 with references and comparative etymology)
