One of the three great boars in Celtic myth. He had a brother Llwydwg both born from their father Twrch Trwyth who with a band of porcupines, ravaged the Welsh countryside. A Welsh warrior called Culhwch had the task to lie with the sliver bristles of Grugyn in order to marry a Giant’s daughter. Culhwch and Arthur went on an epic hunt where they chased the rampaging boars. Many hunters died. Eventually Grugyn Silver Bristle was surrounded and slain.
