A Giant from Dorset in England. He was once a lonely Giant with a club that came to farms to steal sheep for food. One day he ate too much and fell asleep on the hillside. The furious village mob found him there and killed him. The Giant was later caste into the earth as the Cern Abbas Giant shown holding a club and with an erect phallus. There have been many beliefs that having sex on his phallus will result in a definite and successful birth. John Gibbons wrote in 1670 that the Cern Abbas Giant took part in a battle between King Divitiacus and the Cerngik Giants.
