Many, including Brennus, died: this was also acceptable outcome to Gauls, believers as they were in reincarnation, as having acquitted themselves in glorious battle, they could earn themselves better fortune in their next life http://nickel-titanium.com/lib/celtic-mysteries-the-ancient-religion-hardcover.
