Cernunnos' name appears on the Pillar of the Boatmen. The dedication to Emperor Tiberius is one of the earliest pieces of representative Gaulish sculpture to carry a written inscription. The Pillar of the Boatmen originally stood in the Gallo-Roman town of Lutetia. Here, Cernunnos is depicted as having a stag's antlers from which hang two torcs. The Pillar of the Boatmen is now displayed in the Musee National du Moyen Age in Paris and is known to have been created by Gaulish sailors in around 14 C.E. It was found in 1710 in the foundations of the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, the ancient site of Lutetia, the civitas capital of the Celtic Parisii.
Google dressed up to get you in the mood mode before you get to see a nice photograph of the Reims Cernunnos

everybody agrees the statue was found in Reims (or rheims) but nobody specifies when nor where it is now.
.... aahh, this is better:
Musée St-Rémi, 53 me Simon
This work was discovered in the chaingang quarters of Reims 1837
Who ever authored linked description estimates the age of this particular statue to the second century ('not younger than 200 post JC').
Cernunnos depictions are much much older though, found very far from europe, in fact, specially if you strip him down to mere antlers, he's right up there on the most ancient cave walls ... around when he managed to muster help with rock crunching, coin minting torqueyness is yet to be determined and if that dynamite producer has any descendants i cordially invite them to come work for me.
