Tribes of the Earth Goddess Dan(u|a)
There were 4 tribes I think and they certainly had 4 treasures.
1. Dagda’s Cauldron, which fed all who came to eat from it.
2. the Spear of Lugh which was so bloodthirsty it had to be kept in a cauldron of poppies.
3. the Stone of Fal which cried out when the true Ard Ri (high King) stood upon it.
4. the Sword of Nuada which could cut through anything.
