A facet, or aspect, in much of western and eastern Old Land theology, is a concept which defines certain gods who share similarities across pantheons as being faces of essentially a single entity. Facets of the same ober-god-entity may differ somewhat from one another and do not even need to share dispositions. The creation of facets seems to correlate with shared cultural lineage, and cultural reordering, especially speciation (as when one culture splits into two).

For example, Pryja and Zeradwen are labeled facets of the Ur-entity sometimes called the Trenchmother, by theologians who argue they can trace the lineages of the two.
