    Of the Sun, God wot ...

    Hello,

    Can anybody help with the bold text?

    We drew toward Christmas. Cristmas ... Dies natalis invicti: of the Sun, God wot, and no Messiah. The time of the Saturnalia
    was at hand, that seven-day carousel when master and slave sat equal at the table.

    The Dark Chamber, Leonard Cline, 1927

    Thanks

    Nice question - I'd heard the phrase 'God wot' before, but had to look up the origin, here:
